Nate Najar is an American guitarist, composer and producer.


The critics and cognoscenti agree: jazz guitarist Nate Najar’s 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 Najar’s imaginative playing is steeped in Byrd’s 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 world’s most prestigious music venues and produced many superb recordings.
