Now's the Time: Najee
I've seen some of the most legendary figures in jazz perform to hundreds of empty seats at the Gem Theater. Najee's appearance at the historic venue on Saturday, February 15, however, is a virtual sellout. There's no shortage of fans of Najee's funk-infused version of smooth jazz. Saturday's concert will include a tribute to the late Ahmad Alaadeen. Joe Klopus spoke with Najee in advance of the concert.
