Two-time Grammy award nominee and internationally known jazz saxophonist and flautist Najee is taking his fans on a musical love journey with the release of his new CD—and second Shanacie Records effort—”The Morning After.”

“I’ve built a romantic CD of places that I have been before,” said the musician who was born Jerome Najee Rasheed in New York City. “All of the songs have a different meaning and a different feel and are about different places like Mozambique. I want people to feel like they have had a rendezvous at the airport or have taken a trip to the moon.”

Najee enlisted the help of long-time friend, singer Meli’sa Morgan to help bring the sass to the “The Morning After.”

“It was nice playing with Mel’isa. We started together in Chaka Khan’s band, that’s where we first met. She gets a great response from the audience when we’re on the road,” he said.”When you’re in the game at an early age, you want to prove to the world that you belong in the game. But now, you know it’s about having a good life.”
