No stars How we rate: our writers tend to review music they like within their preferred genres.

Recorded in June 1997, Blue Eyes showcases Europe’s master guitarist riffing on 13 classic tunes made famous by "The Voice." It’s a relaxed, yet hard-swingin’ session, highlighted by Lagrene’s fluid guitar stylings and Maurice Vanders’ joyful piano solos. Lagrene even includes a couple of vocals to the set and his renditions of The Lady Is A Tramp and You Make Me Feel So Young are surprisingly good. In light of his recent passing, a poignant and loving tribute to the "Chairman Of The Board."
