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

“She excels as a sensitive song interpreter with unerring intonation.” Downbeat

“Naylor displays as much ingenuity as interpretive skill.” Washington Post

Vocalist and composer Jacqui Naylor returns to Blues Alley with her celebrated twelfth album, Treasures of the Heart, featuring her deeply rich, soulful voice on a signature mix of standards, covers, and original music. Known for her ability to interpret a diverse repertoire, the vocalist attributes her unique sound to tight and spontaneous interplay with long-time bandmates. What Naylor and her trio create on stage together is both sensitive and explosive!

Naylor’s concerts feature music from her new release "Treasures of the Heart" and requested favorites from throughout her illustrious career. The artist’s albums have made exclusive "top-ten" lists in USA Today, Jazziz, The Washington Post and more. Her original music has been featured in ad campaigns, television shows, and films, including a documentary made about her. She also gained notoriety for an arranging technique she coined “acoustic smashing” where she sings a jazz standard over the groove of a well-known rock anthem or vice versa. “Naylor has chops and sensibility to pull it off,” writes New York Magazine.

Highlights from "Treasures of the Heart" include an Afro-Cuban inspired take on the Rodgers and Hart classic “I Didn’t Know What Time It Was,” a sensitive interpretation of Burt Bacharach and Hal David’s iconic “This Guy’s in Love with You,” and encouraging and very groovy Naylor and Khu originals “Love’s Around” and “Treasure of the Heart.”

Naylor tours regularly both nationally and internationally, headlining at some of the world’s finest jazz venues and festivals. These include Ronnie Scott’s London, Sunset-Sunside Paris, Birdland New York, Birdland Hamburg, Quasimodo Berlin, Jazz Alley Seattle, Blues Alley DC, SFJAZZ Center San Francisco, Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, and Blue Note Clubs Worldwide in New York, Milan, and Tokyo.
