Jacqui Naylor is an innovative vocalist recognized for her wide vocal range and ability to mix and multiple genres and generations of music. Her albums have made the “top-ten” lists of USA Today, Jazziz and The Washington Post and she is recognized for her wide vocal range and ability to mix and “smash” multiple genres and generations of music. She is equally at ease singing the music of Johnny Mercer and David Bowie as she is her own original music, with several compositions used in national advertising.

The artist and her quartet are perhaps best known for the arranging technique coined “acoustic smashing” where she sings the melody and lyrics of a jazz standard over the groove of a well-known rock anthem or vice versa. Check out their version of the Rodgers and Hart classic “My Funny Valentine” over ACDC’s “Back In Black.” Naylor has likewise been praised for fresh takes on contemporary tunes like the David Bowie anthem “Space Oddity” and a popular Bossa Nova version of REM’s “Losing My Religion.” The recording was featured on So You Think You Can Dance for a tango competition. Naylor’s many recordings are available throughout the United States, Europe and Asia and she tours regularly in these regions at esteemed venues and festivals, including Monterey Jazz Festival, Jazz Aspen Snowmass, Women in Jazz Germany, Ronnie Scott's London, Jazz Standard New York, Jazz Alley Seattle and Blue Note clubs in New York, Milan and Tokyo
