Unforgettable is an album by American jazz guitarist Joe Pass, released posthumously in 1998 (see 1998 in music).

All tracks on this album are performed on a nylon string classical guitar, and are from the same 1992 session that produced Songs for Ellen.

Reception[edit]

Jim Ferguson (JazzTimes) said of Unforgettable: "Musicians will marvel at Pass' innovative solo voice, facility, and encyclopedic array of harmonic devices, while casual listeners will be soothed by the session's gentle mood. Overall, a vivid look at one facet of the greatest jazz guitarist since Wes Montgomery."[3]
