O’s Notes: Guitarist Nate Najar teams up with James Suggs (t), John Lamb (b) and Matt Home (d) to record a collection of modern Latin classics with a couple of originals. Ella Fredrickson adds warm tones to “Insensatez”. The music is deliberate leading to excellent depictions with exacting instrumental timbre. Among the best are “What Would Ola Mae Do”, “O Morrow No Tem Vez” and “Centerpiece”. Nate has a unique approach to playing his guitar that must be seen to be fully appreciated. But it is certainly fulfilling on this recording.“This is Nate Najar.
