Intimate soulful jazz vocals Jacqui Naylor – The Long Game

Intimate soulful jazz vocals Jacqui Naylor – THE LONG GAME:  I’m not sure why, but this is my first listen to the intimate & soulful jazz vocals Jacqui performs… after all, this release is her 11th, so over the years I should’ve encountered her unique vocal skills… at any rate, here’s a video that gives you clear insight into why I definitely dig her act…

If you enjoyed what you saw & heard there, be sure you SUBSCRIBE to Jacqui’s YouTube channel, where you’ll find many more great performances.

Jacqui’s cast of players is stellar, too… bass from Jon Evans, drums & percussion by Josh Jones and piano, organ & guitar from Art Khu all join together to contribute to high-talent and unique performances like they offer up on “The Thrill Is Gone“… DJ’s will fall in love with this one instantly!

The closer, “All My Life” is an original from Jacqui that she wrote for her partner Art Khu that details the trials, tribulations and joy of being in a relationship… this song will stay in your mind for months (even years) to come.

It was another well-written original from Jacqui that captured my vote for personal favorite of the fourteen emotional songs offered up… “Love Look What You’ve Done” has perfect pacing from the opening bar to the last note… brought a tear to my eye, for sure!

I give Jacqui and her players a HIGHLY RECOMMENDED rating, with an “EQ” (energy quotient) score of 4.98.  Get more information on Jacqui’s albums page.    Rotcod Zzaj
