Nate Najar

Nate Najar is one of the few guitarists playing jazz on the classical guitar. A Florida native, Nate studied guitar with noted Washington, DC guitarist Frank Mullen, who helped develop his pianistic, lightly swinging guitar style. Najar has performed with many jazz greats including Bucky Pizzarelli, Ken Peplowski, Harry Allen and Kenny Drew Jr, and has had an ongoing musical partnership with Ellington alum, bassist John Lamb. In 2008, Nate was selected by Dr. Billy Taylor to represent Charlie Byrd in a 10 day festival at the Kennedy Center celebrating the history of jazz in Washington, DC.

Rick Andersen of the All Music Guide called Nate "one of the most consistently interesting and stylish young guitarists on the jazz scene...."

2010 saw Najar release "Groove Me" on Woodward Avenue Records. A collaboration with Tony Award winning vocalist Melba Moore, "Groove Me" reached into the top 10 of the Billboard Jazz chart. Nate's 2012 Candid Records release "Blues For Night People- The Nate Najar Trio Remembers Charlie Byrd" introduced him to the international stage, including performances at Ronnie Scott's Jazz Club and the 2013 London Jazz Festival.

"Aquarela Do Brasil" is the Nate Najar Trio's latest project (2014 Candid Records) and features a collection of much loved Brazilian melodies, Jobim masterpieces and jazz tunes given the samba treatment. The trio features Nate's long time rhythm section of Tommy Cecil on bass and Chuck Redd on drums. Duduka Da Fonseca guests on drums and percussion when Redd switches to the vibraphone, and tenor saxophonist Harry Allen contributes 2 lyrical performances.

Becky Byrd, wife of the late guitarist Charlie Byrd says it best: "There is no doubt that there is a piece of Charlie's soul in Nate's mind, heart and fingers. Get ready world, here comes Nate Najar!!!"
