Nayo Jones describes her most recent album Nayo Jones Experience Live at the Kerr Center, now on sale on Itunes, as “a bold statement of creative possibilities for the 21st century” on version of some great Jazz standards.
It features Dowell Davis on drums, Felix Sainz on bass, Loannis Goudelis on piano, Kerry Campbell on Alto Saxophone and Doc Jones on Piano on At Last, and Summertime.
For them to participate on a new Nayo Jones album is a little like coming full circle for her. In seeking their collaboration, Nayo shows that her desire to be at the forefront of music is one of her main goal and for the last 10 year she has
put in the work to back it up.
When I met her at the ASU Kerr Center in Scottsdale AZ, she was relaxed to the point of being laid-back: all this unexpectedly changes, however, towards the end of the interview, when I ask Nayo about how’s it been after moving to New Orleans and getting a chance to tour with one of New Orleans legend Kermit Ruffins. She becomes unstoppable, running the interview over time to excitedly explain the Ins and outs of living and working in a city that never stop. Live music and good musicians are everywhere including the streets. I’m living the Dream.
