It’s one thing for a world class musician to write a book with a great title like “How To Make 
Your Guitar Talk,” but Nils has gone further--living, embracing and even transcending those 
words he once penned since becoming an instrumental sensation in 2005 with “Pacific Coast 
The Munich born, Los Angeles 
based guitarist’s breakthrough debut album on Baja/TSR Records was the most heavily played 
track in the smooth jazz format over the past ten years with nearly 30,000 spins. The song was a 
true phenomenon in its initial release, staying at #1 on the Radio & Records airplay chart for 
more than 10 weeks on its way to being named the most played song in the U.S. and Canada for 
the year since then the most played song of the decade . 
 Now Nils is back with a new release, Jazz Gems..Best of Nils, which will take us down memory lane and remind us as to why we love him and his extraordinary music.
He contributed as a musician and co-writer of “Keep Rollin’” on Benson’s 1998 album Standing 
Together, and the guitar and vocal legend returned the favor by playing a duet with Nils on Nils’ 
1998 debut CD Blue Planet. He has also become a core part of many fans’ summer and fall 
festival experience.
