With two platinum and four gold albums, Najee is one of the pioneers of what is commonly known as Contemporary Jazz. A combination of jazz improvisation and R&B, this genre forms a bridge from the Jazz music of the late 80s to the jazz pop of the mid 90s.

Najee is the recipient of many awards. He has been recognized by the Soul Train Music Award for Best Jazz Artist, he also received Grammy recognition for Najee’s Theme as well as the NAACP Image Awards, just to name a few.

Najee has toured in the U.S., Africa , Europe including England, France, Italy, Spain, and Asia. While in South Africa in 1998, he performed for Nelson Mandela for the South African leaders birthday and wedding celebration. Najee was a guest of President Bill Clinton in a special performance at the White House honoring President Jerry Rawlings of the Republic of Ghana.

Over the years Najee has worked with many great artists such as Quincy Jones, Patti LaBelle, George Duke, Lionel Richie and most recently he performed as a special guest artist on the "Hit and Run" tour with Prince.
