Nate Najar's Jazz Holiday with Chuck Redd, Jeff Rupert, John Lamb, Mark Feinman, and James Suggs
Nate Najar's Holiday Jazz Special has become a popular holiday tradition. This year, Nate has put together another stellar band, starting with sax master, Jeff Rupert, and young Lion, James Suggs on trumpet.
Also featured, will be the great vibraphonist, Chuck Redd. Redd has toured and recorded with such artists as Mel Tormé, Bucky and John Pizzarelli, Dizzy Gillespie, Ray Brown, Dick Hyman, and Monty Alexander. Jazz at Lincoln Center audiences recently experienced his exquisite playing when he performed alongside Bucky Pizzarelli and Ken Peplowski.
The critics and cognoscenti agree: jazz guitarist 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.
