As a member of the Guess Who, guitarist and songwriter Randy Bachman wrote some of Canada's best-loved classic rock tunes. Then he did the same again with Bachman-Turner Overdrive. If he did nothing else, his place in the history of Canadian popular music is assured, and what a respected place it is. But Randy also has another side. He's actually a closet jazz player, schooled by the undiscovered master guitarist Lenny Breau, and at times he's been able to incorporate that influence into his hits, such as "She's Come Undone" and "Blue Collar."

As far as I know, this is Randy's first attempt at an actual full-out jazz album. As a singer he's no Chet Baker, but the laid-back style of the music suits him better now than rock, and there's no denying his abilities as a guitar player. Most of this album works, and some of it doesn't. Opening cut "Let's Call It A Night" is a tasty slice of laid-back swing. "In Blue," a melancholy bit of jazzy blues. "Old Feeling" is a Lenny Breau composition in the classic Dave Brubeck mold. "Rose Coloured Glasses" is a really nice tune that would suit the smokey touch of Diana Krall to a "T," and Bachman turns George Gershwin's "Summertime" into an upbeat showcase for his fleet-fingered soloing. "Sentimental Fool" is another fine original song, limited only by Randy's abilities as a vocalist. His cover of Johnny Cash's "I Walk The Line" works well as a vehicle for showing off some fine guitar playing, but the classic country tune does not make a good jazz song, at all. Bachman resurrects an old recording of one of Lenny's solos and incorporates it into "Breau's Place," showing once and for all that he's a real chip off the old block. The album ends with an incredibly beautiful song called "Our Leaves Are Green Again," which has to be one of the best things Mr. Bachman has ever written.

All in all, this is a satisfying album where Bachman gets to cut loose on the guitar and really showcase his talents, both as a musician and a songwriter. Pretty laid back if you're only used to his rock side, but I think he's definitely found a new niche for himself.
