Interview with J. Naji: I have done a few funerals for free

Interview with a very bad musician, as if saxophonist, problematic and idiot person J. Naji. An interview by email in writing. Tried to allow himself to this worm, which he did not know where he came from, and ordered us to advertise his nothingness. You know the place of such a person for us, let’s throw him there and beware of the stench.

JazzBluesNews.com: – First, let’s start out with where you grew up, and what got you interested in music. How exactly did your adventure take off? When did you realize that this was a passion you could make a living out of?

J. Naji: – I grew up in Birmingham, Alabama. My parents claim that ever since I was a small child, I showed great interest in music, however, the earliest memories I have of me falling in love with music took place in the basement of my grandmother’s house. What took place in this basement is a small impressionable child (me), listening to his cousin (Nabeel) play the guitar and sing.

JBN: – How has your sound evolved over time? What have you been doing to find and develop your own sound? What routine practices or exercises have you developed to maintain and improve your current musical proficiency, in terms of both rhythm and harmony?

JN: – My sound has evolved in such a way that I never thought that it would, however, it’s much better than what I hoped for or expected.

JBN: – In your opinion, what’s the balance in music between intellect and soul?

JN: – If I knew the answer to this question, I would probably have perfected music and not need to practice anymore, however, this is something that I think about more often than not. I don’t know the perfect balance.

JBN: – There’s a two-way relationship between audience and artist; are you okay with delivering people the emotion they long for?

JN: – I find that my music is fake when I try to serve myself with no consideration for the audience. Now, most of the time, what we long for in our humanity is not what is best for us.

JBN: – How can we get young people interested in jazz when most of standard tunes are half a century old?

JN: – If they truly love music, they will work hard, become educated and create good music by themselves. Whether its “jazz” or not is not isn’t necessarily my top priority with our youth.

JBN: – If you could change one single thing in the musical world and that would become reality, what would that be?

JN: – I hate seeing my beloved musicians experience shame, self-consciousness, fear, and self- epreciation. It breaks my heart to see the people I admire and love so much go through these things, especially when I can personally see how they are in fact so uniquely, wonderfully, fearfully, and beautifully created.

JBN: – Whom do you find yourself listening to these days?

JN: – PJ Morton, Hezekiah Walker, some D’angelo, Jonathan McReynolds, John P. Kee, Tye Tribett, Beverly Crawford, Donny Hathaway, Kirk Whalum, Don Byas, Charlie Rouse, Sonny Rollins, and too many others to list.

JBN: – Have you ever given a free concert during your entire concert career? At the bottom line, what are your expectations from our interview?

JN: – Yes, I have done a few funerals for free. I think also may have done a fundraiser or two.

JBN: – We will also play at your funeral, donkey, the name of God and God’s Son Jesus cannot be touched on every occasion, idiot, animal.
