Swing is the thing as guitarist Nate Najar and clarinetist/saxophonist Adrian Cunningham romp through their favorite selections from Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Benny Goodman and more.

Joined by Joe Porter on bass and Eddie Metz on drums, Nate and Adrian take you out for a night of grooving swing, burning blues and beautiful balladry.

Guitarist Nate Najar is emerging as one of this decade’s finest modern jazz exponents. He is a player who uses a distinctive technique to convey his artistic prowess- not many artists play acoustic classical guitar with right hand classical technique, yet it is the perfect choice for Najar’s comprehensive approach. Not restricted to single notes or chords, Nate seamlessly weaves melody, harmony and rhythmic freedom. The result is music that is swinging, emotional, inventive and interesting. Nate’s most recent album, "Under Paris Skies," was released in 2018 on Woodward Avenue Records.

Adrian Cunningham is an award-winning multi-instrumentalist, vocalist, and world traveler. Originally from Sydney, Australia and now based in New York, he proves to be one of his country's top exports. With fluent command of the saxophones, clarinet and flute, he is one of the finest multi-instrumentalists in Jazz. Since moving to NYC in 2008, Adrian has quickly risen to be one of the most in-demand woodwind players on the New York jazz scene, having recorded/performed with Jazz luminaries such as Jeff Hamilton, John Clayton, Wynton Marsalis, Herlin Riley, Jon Batiste & Stay Human, Cecile Mclorin Salvant, Steve Jordan, Grammy-winner Vince Giordano and Grammy-nominated Rene Marie. His latest CD, "Jazz Speak," was recorded in LA with jazz legends Jeff Hamilton, John Clayton and Ted Rosenthal and broke the top 20 in the national US Jazzweek Charts.
