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.
Join us today as Diva Candace Gish speaks with the Owner/Founder at Debi's Personal Training Boot Camps
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.
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.
Greg's latest CD, "Can't Help Myself, was released August 1, 2014. Entirely produced by Nate Harasim & Matt Godina, this record features 2x Grammy winner Paul Brown, Julian Vaughn, Nils, and others. Onstage, Greg has played the J.A. Nugget Jazz Night, has performed as an opening act for Evelyn "Champagne" King and Howard Hewett, has backed up Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter, and performs regularly throughout the San Francisco Bay Area.
Greg's last record, "After Hours", featured Paul Brown on guitar, smooth jazz pianist Jonathan Fritzen, session musicians Ross Bolton, Louis Fasman, and Roberto Vally, and the mixing expertise of saxophonist/producer Darren Rahn. Singles from "After Hours" and Greg's 2011 self-titled album have charted on the Smoothjazz.com Top 50 Chart, the Jazzweek Top 50 Smooth Singles Chart and have made the Most Added/Increased Airplay lists for Billboard Magazine, Smoothjazz.com, and RadioWave.
