Editorial Reviews

2009 album from the contemporary Jazz great. Mind Over Matter is inspired by Miles Davis' approach to songwriting, especially in the latter part of his career. ''In his later years, he took a very loose and improvisational approach,'' he says. ''He would start with nothing more than a groove that Marcus Miller or some other member of his band would lay down. And from there he would just develop these melodies that were very simple but at the same time very compelling and very memorable. It was a creative process that bypassed the nuts and bolts of the song and just got right to the essence of it.'' The album features musical assistance from Eric Benet, Jeff Lorber, Will Brock, Will Holton and Gary Taylor.

4.0 out of 5 stars Plugg Tunin' December 17, 2009
Format:Audio CD
A very solid effort from my man Najee. I especially like the opener Love You A Life Time, the funky Mind Over Matter (Great Piano work), Forever And A Day After (Made for Cruising), Needless To Say (nice rhythm section), One More Thing (Head Nodder). You won't be disappointed with this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Najee takes me there! October 20, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I can always count on Najee to take me there. I am feeling "Stolen Glances" , " One More Thing", " Sweet Summer's Night" and " Love you a lifetime". Great music.

Excellent, any Najee fan will love this CD. I have seen him play many of the songs off of this CD live.
His skills as a musician never disapoint. As always, he has his own sound and does a lot of good work on the soprano and tenor sax as well as the flute. Outside of the late Grover Washington jr., you'd be hard pressed to find any sax player on the smooth jazz charts today that have an authentic Jazz/R&B style out of the late 80's to 90's era( circa CD101.9 FM in NY). It all has a lot to do with growing up and listening to the sounds that came out of South East Queens, NY,(aka Jamaica (Queens NY) ,.St. Albans..Springfield Gardens...Cambria Heights Laurelton...etc) Yes, middle class black america

After a long day at work, this cd helps me to unwind and just relax. I love his cd, and would purchase another jazz cd on Amazon. By the way this cd was a used one, I had no problem with playing it, the cd was in great condition, thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars Najee's Mind Over Matter review
I loved every song on the CD. "Sweet Summer Nights" was fantastic. Eric Benet's "We Gone Ride" should be played on as a single; if it already hasn't. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Easy listening
Good, relaxing music. I especially enjoyed the song w/Eric Benet. I like that Najee switches back and forth from Soprano to Alto sax, so some songs have a different sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars He's Done It Again!
Its getting a little boring but Najee has done it again, more so for those of us who have seen him live and dig his sound. Another great album, this time with a few latin twists. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Najee good to have you doing what you do best
Love this guy, his sound got a little predictable, that's fine, however a musician of Najees calibre needs to be more than "fine" & this album is a huge cut above that. Enjoy it.
