Bending Genres with Jacqui Naylor
Jacqui Naylor has carved an individual vocal niche with a style that draws deeply from jazz, but also reaches far beyond it. Her most recent CD, Dead Divas Society, pays tribute to departed female vocalists from Ella Fitzgerald to Amy Winehouse and Mama Cass. She’s also created a unique artform in her “acoustic smashers” by combining the lyrics and melody from one song with the groove of another. She’s appearing in trio at the Jazz Station in Eugene on Saturday, October 18th and she joins Eric Alan for conversation and music.
