National Radio campaign begins March 2012, National Tour (including a Solo Guitar Living Room Concert Series) will begin April 2012 and run through December 2012.

New solo acoustic guitar music from one of contemporary jazz's leading guitarists. His previous CD "Dreaming of Trains" was pre-nominated for the 2011 Grammy awards in 2 categories and his 2010 album "The Grace of Summer Light" was named the best contemporary jazz album of the year at Jazz Times. Over the past 20 years, he has had numerous Top 5 songs at national radio and has performed in every major US city. In each of the 12 songs that make up "The Test of Time", Navarro delivers a genuine, flawless performance, where all of the melodies, bass lines, harmonies and even percussion are masterfully played simultaneously on just one guitar without any overdubbing. Some of the contemporary classics included are The Police's "Message In A Bottle", John Lennon's "Imagine", Glen Campbell's "Wichita Lineman, Pat Metheny's "Letter From Home" and Santana's "Europa". This new release is a huge milestone and leap forward in Navarro's career. The performances are magical in many ways and will be appreciated by a wide audience. Navarro's mastery of the many different styles is breathtaking. He has infused himself in each style of solo guitar playing so that it transcends the song and style and becomes an original Ken Navarro masterpiece.
