Review: Nate Najar has enthralled audiences across the globe with his trademark and distinctive style of performing jazz on acoustic classical guitar. Continuing on his freewheeling journey as a true musical citizen of the world, his latest release is a soulful, multi-faceted recording reflecting his enduring love for the City of Lights, & exploring his passion for French jazz and pop with a deeper commitment and purpose than ever before and showcases the "rabbit hole" of research he did to curate a unique eclectic variety of pop, jazz and classical songs rarely re-imagined by American jazz artist.
