Najee

One of the best-selling instrumentalists of the late '80s to mid-'90s, Najee has been a consistent favorite in the quiet storm and so-called "smooth jazz" markets. Often compared to Kenny G, George Howard, and Dave Koz, the New Yorker has been greatly influenced by Grover Washington Jr. -- although he hasn't been nearly as adventurous. Heavily produced and quite formulaic, Najee's albums have tended to avoid improvisation and strive for commercial radio airplay above all else. Debuting in 1987 with Najee's Theme, Najee was an immediate hit in the new adult contemporary (NAC) market. Similar pop/urban jazz dates like 1988's Day by Day and 1990's Tokyo Blue did nothing to jeopardize his niche on smooth jazz radio. Onstage, Najee takes some risks and stretches out more. Morning Tenderness was released in 1998, followed by Love Songs (2000), Embrace (2003), My Point of View (2005), True Spirit (with John Grant, Victor Williams, and Dennis Chambers in 2006), Rising Sun (2007), and Mind Over Matter (2009). In 2012, Najee released his 14th studio album, The Smooth Side of Soul, featuring the track "First Kiss," a collaboration with R&B vocalist Phil Perry. Najee returned in 2013 with The Morning After: A Musical Love Journey which included the song "Shinjuku," a tribute to the late jazz keyboard legend George Duke. ~ Alex Henderson, Rovi

From the first time that I heard Najee's theme I knew he would be one of the most popular Jazz artist. I make it a point to see him perform whenever touring.

I've been an avid Najee fan from the very beginning! Thank you Najee for continuing to serenade me with your soothing smooth sound. By the way, you were awesome at the Berks Jazzfest 2015. I was back stage with you taking pictures and all that good stuff. Keep on doin what you do best-playing that sax!!!

Gotta be kidding me when they make reference to Kenny G. Kenny G couldn't hold a match to Nagee's musical prowess. Nagee is multitalente d and can use transformati o n a l wind instruments to reflect the use of these instruments.

I have one Kenny G cd and I'm using it to keep the squirrels out of the trees I n the front yard.

Im from Detroit, MI. and I first heard Najee on a 24 hour jazz station we previously had called WJZZ. Fell in love with dude's music every since. Najee's Theme, Secret Admirer, and Just an Illusion are some of my favorite songs. Man I wish we still had a variety of music stations, I miss Jazz music!
