Oakland-born guitarist/composer Nathan Clevenger slides in to support of the release of his latest album, Observatory. This album highlights Nathan's take on modern jazz, which he describes as precise chamber jazz harmonic/melodic elements through a volatile jazz ensemble.

"Clevenger’s writing takes a lot from the swing era, but it’s packed with odd time signatures, twisty compositions, and passages of improvisation that go well beyond the old concept of a solo. Peppy, often pretty, and just a little weird." – Craig Matsumoto, Memory Select
