Saturday, March 29, 2014 - 4:00pm

You’ll hear the mellifluous sounds of Najee on Colors of Jazz, when the two-time Grammy nominated contemporary jazz saxophonist and flautist talks with host Bonnie Johnson. Celebrating his CD The Morning After - A Musical Love Journey, Najee will perform live at Scullers Jazz Club on April 4 & 5, 2014.  The New York City native began honing his craft studying flute during his high school years at The Manhattan School of Music with Harold Jones of the NY Philharmonic Orchestra and on Saturdays in Harlem at the historic Jazzmobile after meeting Dr. Billy Taylor.  Najee was taught and mentored by Jimmy Heath, Frank Foster and Jaki Byard among others. Described as "a visionary", the alum of New England Conservatory of Music has collaborated with “an array of world class musicians” including friend of WICN, Dr. Bill Banfield, George Duke, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Chaka Khan and Herbie Hancock. Find out more about Najee's "musical journey" that includes giving back to community through work with youth; sharing his gift of music with the Najee Woodwind Workshop. Tune in at 4pm.
