O’s Notes: Jacqui takes a daring approach to the Holiday tunes by fusing pop rock and jazz tunes with Holiday classics. She calls her approach acoustic smashing. For example Naylor is sings “Santa Baby” while the band plays Led Zeppelin’s “D’yer Mak’er”. We preferred the more relaxed jazzier tracks: “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”, “The Christmas Song” and the beautiful bossa nova beats of “Winter”, an original. But Naylor pulls off the transformation for her fan base in the spirit of good old rock and roll.
