Jazz-Pop Vocalist Jacqui Naylor Performs for BMI Staff

Posted in News on August 17, 2006
Jazz-pop singer Jacqui Naylor dropped by the New York office to try out some of her new songs for BMI staff. The 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.

The album boasts an eclectic yet seamless recording of five originals, five covers and five of her trademark "acoustic smashes," a technique invented by Naylor, where she sings a rock tune over a jazz standard or vice-versa.
