T.K. Blue :
“Naomi is an extraordinary musician of the highest caliber. I had the honor and pleasure of working with her in Holland during May 2014, in a band called “T.K. Blue and Nazz Jazz” which made some wonderful concerts. Her execution on the saxophone is top-notch laced with melodically inventiveness and spiced with deep soul!! The maturity of Naomi’s sound belies her youthfulness. I look forward with great anticipation to the next opportunity to hear Nazz perform and more importantly to perform with her”
T.K. Blue is educator, international performing and recording artist with such jazz icons as Dizzy Gillespie,Pharoah Sanders, Randy Weston, Jimmy Scott, Chico Hamilton, Bobby McFerrin etc. Please see www.tkblue.com
