“Jacqui Naylor is an incomparable triple threat, serving up classic covers with the best of them, delivering top-drawer originals and inspiring with the musical marriage she calls acoustic smashing," wrote JazzTimes.

“The words and melody are Gershwin’s ‘Summertime’ but the groove is Allman’s ‘Whipping Post.’ Naylor has the chops and
sensitivity to pull it off,” adds The New York Times. “Her whisky-tinged voice can bring to mind a mid-career Peggy Lee,” sounds the Seattle Times.

The artist has released her seventh recording, You Don’t Know Jacq (Ruby Star/Warner), and tours nationally and internationally, including acclaimed debuts at Ronnie Scotts London, Blue Note Milan and Tokyo, and The Women In Jazz Festival Germany. The Wall Street Journal claims "The Color Five and Smashed For The Holidays marked a turning point in Naylor’s career.” Indeed, her holiday recording placed in the top 10 for the season in USA Today, Jazziz Magazine and The Washington Post.

Naylor’s current release has already garnered much fame, with “Rise Up” featured on the Obama/Biden Website and “Celebrate Early & Often” used in advertising for Columbian Emeralds and Novell Wedding Rings. All Music Guide writes “Part jazz chanteuse and part folk-pop-leaning singer/songwriter, she enjoys nothing more than mixing things up. She could easily get by performing only her own material, but her covers and standards are so appealingly original in their execution that her albums wouldn't be the same without them.”

Her Blue Note shows will include requests from her recordings as well as brand new originals and breathtaking standards chosen for Thanksgiving. As the perfect start to the holiday season, Naylor invites eleven-year old Matt Wong to sit in on piano and guitar. To learn more, hear more and make requests for the show, visit
