Under Paris Skies

Album Review: Under Paris Skies by Nate Najar (8/10)

While Django Reinhardt’s classic “Nuages” has been part of his trio’s set list for years, acoustic guitarist Nate Najar explores his passion for French pop and jazz with deeper commitment and purpose than ever before on his new full-length album Under Paris Skies. A warm, soulful, multi-faceted expression of his enduring love for the City of Lights, Under Paris Skies reflects the deep and exciting “rabbit hole” of research Najar did to curate a unique eclectic variety of pop, jazz and classical songs that are played often in France but rarely re-imagined by American jazz artists. A magnificent expression of his longtime love affair with Paris.
