Share Tweet Email

This weeks featured artist saxophonist and flute player Najee is a highly educated musician and very accomplished performer. Amazingly his debut album received a Grammy Award nomination and his second album went platinum. Now 40 years later he is still going strong having released a great album Poetry In Motion last August that we have been playing and that produced a billboard number one. He also plays on a song that is currently this weeks number two. I hope you enjoy the fine music from this talented artist.

Billboard top three songs in smooth jazz this week.

New 2018 releases from The Jazz Holdouts, trumpeter Lin Rountree, saxophonist Marion Meadows with a vocal from Grammy Award winner soul singer Peabo Bryson,and a very touching song written by pianist Brian Culbertson for Valentine’s Day for his lovely wife.

Second hour is turn up the quiet time. Artists performing five in a row uninterrupted include Diana Krall, Jazmin Ghent & Jonathan Fritzen, Paul Brown, Pieces Of A Dream, and Richard Elliot.

Another song from this year’s Grammy Award winning album Prototype from the Jeff Lorber Fusion.

Another song from Jim Brickman in anticipation of his April 20th appearance in Redding.

More songs from Chuck Loeb, Dotsero, and Hiroshima.
