So Lucky is an album by guitarist Noël Akchoté featuring tracks composed, performed, or inspired by Kylie Minogue. The album was recorded in 2006 and released by Winter & Winter in 2007.[1][2]

Reception[edit]

All About Jazz said "French guitarist Noël Akchoté has previously been associated with avant-leaning projects of heady conception and eclectic leanings, so his new recording, So Lucky, may surprise fans for its overtly commercial appeal. A collection of straightforward renditions of diatonic melodies and functional harmonies, emphasizing tunefulness over improvisative exploration, the album's appeal lies in its subtle variations on a theme, tasteful texturing and rubato moments".[3]
