Jacqui Naylor Short Info

"Jacqui Naylor remains one of the most superbly arresting vocalists around." JAZZTIMES

"Naylor excels as a sensitive song interpreter with unerring intonation." DOWNBEAT

"Jacqui delivers an excellent set with great material and assured vocals." SFJAZZ Randall Kline

"Jacqui does really well on a 3-4 night run. I recommend her." BLUE NOTE Steven Bensusan.

This vocalist and song-writer is equally as ease singing music by Cole Porter and David Byrne as she is her own original music. Far from a straight-laced jazz purist, Naylor has made the mixing and sometimes smashing of genres and eras her stock-in-trade, gaining fans and notoriety for singing the lyrics and melody of jazz standards over the grooves of well-known pop and rock songs and vice versa. "Naylor has the chops and sensitivity to pull it off," writes NEW YORK MAGAZINE.

With nine recordings released in the USA, Europe and Asia, this artist tours regularly in these regions at esteemed jazz venues and festivals, playing ALL Blue Note clubs worldwide, Birdland NYC, Ronnie Scotts London, Yoshi's Oakland, Quasimodo Berlin, Unterfahrt Munich, Bari Jazz Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, San Francisco Jazz Festival and more. Her albums have made the top ten lists of USA TODAY, JAZZIZ, THE WASHINGTON POST and more.

Jacqui Naylor is in production of her tenth recording for release in 2016, booking tours for 2016 and 2017. Her touring quartet includes long-time co-composer and arranger, Art Khu, on piano and guitar and alternately Josh Jones and Danny Gottlieb on drums, Richie Goods and Phil Steen on bass.
