Jacqui Naylor

JACQUI NAYLOR can only be described as... supremely versatile. This San Francisco-based vocalist and songwriter, who is about to launch her fifth CD, The Color Five, shines through jazz, pop, and rock while adding touches of gospel, folk, blues, and even a little humor into the mix.

With The Color Five, Naylor has created an eclectic yet seamless recording of five originals, five covers, and five of her trademark “acoustic smashes.” Acoustic smashing is a technique invented by Naylor, and is the singing of a rock tune over a jazz standard or vice versa. “There is true genius at work here,” claims legendary DJ Ken Dashow from New York's only classic rock station, Q-104. For example, Naylor sings the American Songbook classic “Summertime” over the music from The Allman Brothers' southern rock classic “Whipping Post.” Another surprising “acoustic smash” on the new album is U2's “I Still Haven't Found What I'm Looking For” sung over Miles Davis' “All Blues.”
