Guitarist Nate Najar to Pay Tribute to Charlie Byrd

SOURCE: Published: 2008-09-08
Nate Najar Nate Najar, one of only a few guitarists who play jazz on a classical guitar, will join bassist Joe Byrd and drummer Chuck Redd to pay tribute to Charlie Byrd. For two nights, on November 21 and 22, Najar will visit Annapolis, Md (The Charlie Byrd Trio's homebase for the last 25 years of Charlie's career) and sounds of swing, blues and of course bossa nova will fill the air. Says Najar, “Charlie Byrd is one of my largest influences, and while I regret not having the chance to meet him, it is a tremendous honor to work with his band and pay tribute."

The event will be featured at the Loews Hotel's acclaimed “Jazz at the Powerhouse" series in downtown Annapolis.

Nate will also have the first copies of his new CD The Nate Najar Trio-Live At The Side Door available for purchase. Live... features acclaimed Duke Ellington bassist John Lamb and Chuck Redd on drums.
