Savoir Faire is Najee's sophisticated exploration into the world of sensuality and romance, interspersed with fantastic, spirited grooves that have made Najee a favorite the world over.
On Savoir Faire, superstar producers Barry Eastmond (Whitney Houston), Paul Brown (Boney James), and Chris Big Dog Davis (Richard Elliot) create brilliant canvases for Najee to paint his virtuosic masterpieces. Highlights include Najee's passionate remake of Norman Conner's classic “Valentine Love,” the sensuously grooving “Dr. Dolittle,” the Brazillian-tinged “Happiness (A Felicidade),” the funky “Bounce,” and much more.
In a business where trends and artists come and go, Najee’s name is synonymous with innovation, consistency, and the best in contemporary jazz. The visionary has enjoyed an enviable three-decade career by staying true to his own artistic vision. Mentored by iconic saxmen Jimmy Heath and Frank Foster and flutist Harold Jones, the New England Conservatory of Music alum has worked with a who’s who list in music that includes Stevie Wonder, Quincy Jones and Herbie Hancock.
Najee is a master storyteller. Whether the debonair multi-instrumentalist is engaged in a verbal or musical conversation, his alluring charisma has a way of seducing you into his world.
