Chet Atkins • Workshop



Review by Greg Adams
Chet Atkins, the country boy whose catholic tastes deserve some of the credit (or blame) for pushing country music toward the pop mainstream in the '60s, serves up exclusively pop and jazz material on his 1961 album Chet Atkins' Workshop. "Whispering" and "Lullaby of Birdland" are two of the jazz standards, while instrumental renditions of the Debbie Reynolds hit "Tammy" and Doris Day's "Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, WIll Be)" are pure pop. Atkins' relaxed fingerpicking works the material into a smooth consistency that sometimes belies the complexity of his technique, but the album is an engaging listen and an effortless-sounding intersection of diverse styles. Atkins was an album artist, and Chet Atkins' Workshop, though failing to produce a charting single, made the Top Ten and became his best-selling LP.

Revisión por Greg Adams
Chet Atkins, el chico del campo cuyos gustos católicos merecen parte del crédito (o la culpa) por llevar la música country a la música pop en la década de los sesenta, ofrece material de pop y jazz en su álbum de 1961 Chet Atkins 'Workshop. "Whispering" y "Lullaby of Birdland" son dos de los estándares del jazz, mientras que las interpretaciones instrumentales de la exitosa "Tammy" de Debbie Reynolds y "Que Sera, Sera de Doris Day" son puramente pop. La selección relajada de Atkins hace que el material se convierta en una consistencia suave que a veces desmiente la complejidad de su técnica, pero el álbum es una escucha atractiva y una intersección de diversos estilos que suena sin esfuerzo. Atkins fue un artista del álbum, y Chet Atkins 'Workshop, aunque no pudo producir un single de charting, llegó al Top Ten y se convirtió en su LP más vendido.
