Bruce Cockburn Adopts an Instrumental Approach

Bruce Cockburn's guitar prowess has won the Canadian singer-songwriter fans across international borders. His latest record capitalizes on that trend -- by being entirely instrumental.

For Speechless, Cockburn stretched his already expansive skills, injecting the blues into the record with songs like "King Kong Goes to Tallahassee." He co-produced the album with T Bone Burnett, along with Cockburn's fellow Canadian guitarist and singer Colin Linden.
