Guitarist Charlie Byrd came into international prominence with his collaborations with Stan Getz in the formative days of the Bossa Nova movement. Rising star guitarist Nate Najar was attracted to Byrd's playing whilst taking guitar lessons at High school in Washington D.C. Nate admired the simple elegance of the Charlie Byrd style-sounding as it did as if that was the "right" way to do it. Here Nate plays Charlie's actual guitar in similar style but committed to maintaining his own individuality while still paying tribute to Charlie. He chose the songs based on Byrd's affinity for a great melody and fine composers of the 20th century. As Charlie's widow Becky says "There is no doubt that there is a piece of Charlie's soul in Nate's mind, heart and fingers. Get ready world - here comes Nate Najar!"
