Nate Najar is an American guitarist, composer and producer. The critics and cognoscenti agree: jazz guitarist Nate Najarís virtuosity exudes a dynamic and truly intoxicating elegance. His artistry evokes a modern and progressive attitude that perpetuates the legacy of the great Charlie Byrd. But while Najarís imaginative playing is steeped in Byrdís tradition it nevertheless emulates a collection of other artistic musical influences, including classical, bebop, fusion, bossa nova and even post modern, which have all culminated to inspire a player whose sophisticated and often innovative artistry has placed him in many of the worldís most prestigious music venues and produced many superb recordings.
The new album "Under Paris Skies" is out 7 September, 2018 on Woodward Avenue Records.
