Album Description

Naylor is best known for her ability to interpret a diverse repertoire, bringing together music from different genres and generations. On The Long Game, listeners will experience ethereal jazz arrangements of rock classics from David Bowie (“Space Oddity”), Peter Gabriel ("Don't Give Up") and Coldplay ("Fix You") that sit comfortably next to Latin treatments of standards from Kurt Weill and Charlie Chaplin. Interwoven throughout are the singer’s own compositions, written with long-time pianist, guitarist and arranger, Art Khu. “Her songs are Joni Mitchell good,” writes Jazz Times.
