FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: New York, NY (August 17, 2017) – On Friday, August 25, 2017, Grammy Nominated and award-winning international saxophonist and flautist, Najee, will release his highly anticipated new album “Poetry In Motion”, on Shanachie Entertainment. Najee’s musical journey as a multi-platinum instrumentalist, is what has catapulted him for being one of the most sought after musicians in both genres of Jazz and R&B.  His new album, produced by Barry Eastmond (Anita Baker, Whitney Houston, and Aretha Franklin), features: Incognito, Will Downing, Eric Roberson, Maysa, Bobby Lyle, and Blake Aaron. It has been almost 30 years since Eastmond and Najee worked together. This reunion and new album is what Najee considers “a labor of love…and a pleasure to work with the legendary producer.” Eastmond’s creative energy, focus and experience is what brought all these different facets together.                     “Poetry In Motion” is Najee’s 17th studio-album and fourth release on Shanachie Entertainment label. As he states, “What makes this album special to me is the ability to work with my friends and create a project that has so many different elements but yet make sense musically speaking.”  The meaning behind the title “Poetry In Motion” is a phrase that describes the flow of the music as well as the contributions by the artists involved. Najee was inspired by the title from friend and renowned singer Will Downing, who he gives credit to.
