Unforgettable is a posthumous release produced out of the 1992 sessions that produced Songs for Ellen. Joe Pass, 63, continues his enormous legacy as a virtuosic guitarist and innovative composer with this solo album. The entirety is played on nylon-stringed classical guitar and the result is an incredibly smooth, quiet and beautiful record that is exceptional from the first track "My Romance" through the whole album.
