Another Breau collaboration.
Lenny Breau was a jazz player influenced by country music; after all, he was Chet Atkins' protege. Buddy Emmons plays the most country of all instruments - steel guitar. One would expect this session to be a country-jazz hybrid (perhaps something along the lines of jazzy Atkins albums or Jimmy Bryant). In fact, there is not much country about this disc. Some of it is straight-ahead jazz (the covers of Killer Joe and Scrapple From The Apple); Compared To What is a bar-band rocker with jazz-rock breaks, Buddy's vocals only enhance the pub atmosphere; and the originals - Minors Aloud and On A Bach Bouree - are sublime instrumentals of no particular genre affiliation. An interesting album all around.
