And friend to #MMT and saxophonist extraordinaire Najee has a new album out entitled “Poetry In Motion!” This is his 17th studio release and he says the title “Poetry In Motion” is a phrase that describes the flow of the music, as well as the contributions by the artists involved.
The album blends Najee’s signature smooth R&B sound with sultry nuances and exchanges provided by the featured guest artists that include Will Downing, Incognito, Maysa, Bobby Lyle, and Blake Aaron. Also contributing to the project is a friend to the site, singer/songwriter Eric Roberson, whom Najee considers a “long overdue” collaborator on the track “Is It The Way.” (You can find a 60 second clip of the song being performed live at Warmdaddy’s by Najee with guest artist Eric Roberson at my Instagram page @musicfilmdiva).
“Poetry In Motion is available on iTunes and Amazon Music. You can also find out more information about the album and Najee’s upcoming tour dates at www.najeeofficial.com or @najeeofficial on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Lastly, don’t forget MMT is currently running two DVD/digital giveaway contests for “Unleashed” movie and “The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks.” So, pay close attention to those entry details and make sure you’re tagging properly on social media when sharing posts (it really will increase your chances of winning)!
