Nate Jarrell / Press

"Add Nate Jarrell to the list of top-flight San Diego jazz guitarists. His CD-release party at Architecture last night for The Next Chapter placed him in the direct lineage of guys like Mundell Lowe, Peter Sprague, Bob Boss and Jaime Valle." "Jarrell has a distinctive, clean tone, and his chops are informed and confident. He can swing, and he does it in a thoroughly modern, modally informed style. Each solo he took last night was full of ideas, and he was creative in finding ways to stretch the contours of the harmony."
