Jesus shared with the scribes and many more about the personal hygiene problem they believed his disciples had when it came to eating before washing their hands. Many are concerned about the outter appearence and had washing but never consider washing the inside. The inside washing is much more important than washig the outside.

UC&P proudly welcomes back to the show 2x Grammy nominated multi-instrumentalist Najee , as we catch up and talk about the success of his latest hot and seductive album "The Morning After - A Musical Love JournA visionary, Najee assembles an array of world class musicians on The Morning After - A Musical Love Journey....and what is ahead.
Featured artists on the CD include producer Demonte Posey (Eric Benet, Toni Braxton, and Babyface), bassist Bill Sharpe (Dave Coz and Barbara Streisand), guitarist Ray Fuller (George Duke, Anita Baker, and Whitney Houston), drummer Daniel Powell (Tamia), bassist Brian Bromberg (Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock) and drummer Joel Taylor (Joe Sample’s current band). Chart-topping R&B diva Meli’sa Morgan also joins Najee for an unforgettable duet. The Morning After - A Musical Love Journey opens with the sound of Najee’s voice as he anxiously awaits to board his plane but is unexpectedly delayed waiting for a certain special woman. Alas, she arrives and the journey begins. Najee explains, “The album title describes a fantasy trip where two people meet and experience their journey together.” The saxophonist describes the making of his new CD as an intense process. “It was recorded as a live studio album in two ½ weeks, during which time we also mixed and mastered the music. I would say the anticipation was very much part of the journey with this record.” Najee’s musical adventure unfolds with the jubilant “Rendezvous,” featuring his robust tenor saxophone. The Morning After - Musical Love Journey finds Najee transporting listeners around the globe to locations that have inspired him in some way.
As he continues his emergence as a dynamic new independent artist in the contemporary jazz world, keyboardist and composer Al DeGregoris still remembers the encouraging words he parents would offer frequently as he was growing up in Long Island: “Be patient. Work hard. Everything will come, All In Good Time.” That last phrase is the perfect title of DeGregoris’ new album, the latest step in the fulfillment of his musical dreams, which finds him vibing with some of contemporary jazz’s top hit making artists.
