Jacqui Naylor: Treasures of the Heart

Vocalist & Composer Celebrates New Release with Her Trio

Art Khu (piano), Geoff Brennan (bass), Josh Jones (drums)

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

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

Vocalist and composer Jacqui Naylor returns 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 sensitive, dynamic, and captivating!

Naylor’s concerts feature music from 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 arrangement 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 “Treasures 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.
