South Bay native Jackie Naylor to unveil new album with 6 SF shows

Jackie Naylor, a Saratoga-born jazz and pop singer, came in handy when she recorded her latest album, The Long Game, released earlier this year. Her fans – and they were known to be dedicated to their cause – were invited to help select songs for the album, and if they ever had any interesting and varied suggestions.

The album includes tunes written by David Bowie (“Space Oddity”), Peter Gabriel (“Don’t Give Up”) and even Kurt Weill and Ogden Nash (“Speak Softly”), as well as several tunes written by Naylor and her. longtime co-author of Art Hu.

The album also features what Naylor calls “acoustic crushing,” in which she combines jazz standard melody and lyrics with the rhythmic backbone of rock or pop songs. This comes with her cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You,” which features elements of “It Never Entered My Mind” by Miles Davis.
