A rising star and musical hero, Varady plays with incredible finesse and confidence: his age, 16, makes his approach downright startling. This guitarist also stands out from many veteran musicians. He's performed at the Montreux Jazz Festival in front of the festival's legendary founder, the late Claude Nobs, and world renowned producer Quincy Jones, who has since taken Varandy on as a protege. Varady's omnivorous repertoire includes jazz standards, rock staples, pop selections (including a Justin Bieber tune) and Varady's original compositions. David Paich (Toto) produced along with Jay Oliver and Dirty Loops. Its cast includes keyboardist Greg Phillinganes, bassist Brian Bromberg, percussionist Paulinho da Costa and drummers Harvey Mason and Dave Weckl. Guests include Roy Hargrove on flugelhorn, singers Nikki Yanofsky, Kevin Ross, Drew Ryan Scott and Gregory Porter, who lends his commanding baritone to "Let the Good Times Roll". Additionally, Nathan East, Steve Lukather, Steve Porcaro and Aleks Sever are featured musicians.
