Najee has been called one of the finest instrumentalists on the contemporary jazz scene. His smooth pop-jazz style, heavy on rhythm and blues, has gained him a tremendous audience of fans and a series of gold albums. Najee gives the people what they want to hear, and this has been his road to success. Although his aim-to- please attitude has brought criticism from some circles, he told Deni Kasrel of Jazz Times on-line that "when critics come to my concerts, they see the other side. I mix it up.... " Najee tours extensively, playing at clubs and music festivals worldwide.
