Gig Alert: Jacqui Naylor at the Blue Note
Tickets: $20-$30, Show at 8PM
Jazz singers are always looking to put their own stamp on the standards they perform. Take “My Funny Valentine,” for instance. What can you do with this Rodgers & Hart classic that hasn’t already been done by Chet Baker, Ella Fitzgerald, or Frank Sinatra? Well Jacqui Naylor decided to sing it over the familiar groove of a very different song – AC/DC’s hard rock anthem Back In Black.
Jacqui Naylor spends her Thanksgiving evening at The Blue Note, riffing through a repertoire that goes from Rogers and Hart to REM.
