Sails is an album by Chet Atkins. It was released in 1987 by Columbia Records. Sails follows in the 1980s' vein of Chet Atkins' releases with a smooth jazz and new age atmosphere.


Long time Chet Atkins devotees (there are no "fans", only worshippers) love the late greatest guitarist of all time for his astonishing mastery of any type of music he felt like exploring and putting all comers to shame in the process. From old country to show tunes, to covering the Beatles and working with Mark Knopfler and Les Paul, he did it all.

"Sails" is a companion piece to "C.G.P.", both '80's releases of smooth jazz/pop music that showed his contemporary side. "Sails" is hard to find, but can be ordered on Amazon. It is a synth and strings heavy mellow outing, his playing more sparse, serving the melodies and avoiding overplaying, which shows how great he was, understanding economy is just as vital as shredding. For those in a quiet contemplative mood, wishing for some real melody or soothing jagged nerves, it can't be beat. Far from wimpy Muzak crap, "Sails" is tasteful and top notch, which one could expect nothing less from this giant of American music.

Review by Scott Hedegard, Amazon.com


Another of Chet Atkins' attempts to break into the jazz world during his Columbia period, this recording veers well across the line into new age wallowing of the most innocuous kind. At this point in time, when a record opened with soothing ocean waves, followed by a gentle wash of synths, you could pretty much expect the new age to be lapping at your feet throughout. As he has with so many other genres, Atkins displays an instinctive grasp of this feel-good idiom, though he has to hold back his powers of invention to conform to its clichés and repetitions. Yet even amidst the twittering sound effects and electronic drums of "Up in My Treehouse" and the listless treatment of Keith Jarrett's "My Song," Atkins' guitar always exudes dignity. Encouragingly, several of the tunes that Atkins composed himself are the most interesting ones on the disc. "Laffin' at Life" allows for some fingerpicking by the master and some OK doodling by other guitarists and keyboardists, and the smooth jazz "On a Roll" has other facets of the Atkins personality, with Earl Klugh apparently taking a guest solo. One of Atkins' favorite latter-day collaborators, Mark Knopfler, is also on the record, to little discernable effect. Obviously, then, this is not one of the better Atkins Columbia discs.
