Jazz at the NCMA is excited to welcome 10-time Grammy Award–winning a cappella group Take 6 for an evening of straight-ahead jazz, pop, adult R&B, doo-wop, and the blues. Multiplatinum saxophonist and flutist Najee kicks off the night with the best in contemporary jazz stylings.
About Take 6
Heralded by music icon Quincy Jones as the “baddest vocal cats on the planet” and recognized as the most awarded a cappella group in history, Take 6 is the quintessential a cappella model for vocal genius.
With 10 Grammy Awards, 10 Dove Awards, 2 NAACP Image Awards, a Soul Train Award, and more, Take 6 (Claude McKnight, Mark Kibble, Joel Kibble, Dave Thomas, Alvin Chea, and Khristian Dentley) continues to bring extraordinary music to their worldwide audiences. Like a fine-tuned vocal orchestra, the group pushes the boundaries of creativity with every new release and with their ever-evolving live performances.
In a business where trends and artists come and go, Najee’s name is synonymous with innovation, consistency, and the best in contemporary jazz. A two-time platinum-selling and four-time gold-selling multi-instrumentalist, he has enjoyed an enviable three-decade career by staying true to his own artistic vision. Najee’s music showcases technical agility, grace, compositional prowess, unbridled passion, and a fearless genre-bending approach.
