PHILADELPHIA, PA. (Top40 Charts/ Ruby Records) - Jazz/Pop musician Jacqui Naylor will be playing a holiday show at World Cafe Live in Philadelphia on Sunday December 21st, 2008.
Jacqui is best known for her signature 'acoustic smashing' technique - singing jazz standards of rock classics or vice versa. In the holiday spirit, Jacqui's performance will include some tunes from her album 'Smashed For The Holidays' (which made the top ten list for USA Today, Boston Globe, Washington Post, and Jazziz among others).
Picture 'Santa Claus is Coming to Town' over Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'Sweet Home Alabama,' and 'Santa Baby' sung to the groove of Led Zeppelin's 'D'yer Mak'er' … Jacqui sings a holiday standard while the band plays a well-known rock tune, seamlessly combining classic rock and holiday classics.
Jacqui will also be performing songs from her latest CD, 'You Don't Know Jacq', which includes more unique smashing collaborations like Gershwin's 'Summertime' over the Allman Brothers' 'Whipping Post' and Rogers/Hart's 'My Funny Valentine' over AC/DC's 'Back in Black,' along with new original tracks.
