"Lucky Girl" is Jacqui Naylor's best work. I love listening to her sing. Her voice conveys such warmth and sensuality. The lyrics of her original songs are meaningful. The songs she covers sound fresh. Jacqui is the total package. She is a talented singer and song writer. The title track is a song that reminds me of all the blessings in my life. The blessings are the things in my life that do not involve money. Some of my blessings are my family and my friends. Josh Jones provides a a groovy beat on the drums on this track. All the musicians playing on this album are so talented. "The Surrey With The Fringe On Top" is another gem of a song. Art Khu plays the guitar on this track. His guitar playing reminds me of George Benson. The musical arrangement comes Benson's classic hit "Breezin". This track puts me in a relaxed mood. "Sunshine and Rain" is a song that reminds me to live each day to the fullest. The guitar playing sounds groovy on this track. Jacqui sings about being in love and falling out of love equally well. "Since I Love You" has a romantic smooth tone. "Only Love Can Break Your Heart" is a song that reminds me that a broken heart is not the end of the world. This song features a musician named Chloe Scott playing the flute. Jacqui covers the Teddy Pendergrass soul classic "Close The Door". Chloe Scott plays the flute on this track too. Her flute playing gives this track a laid back tone. Her playing is absolutely lovely. "I Promise" is a beautiful love song. This song is so sweet. "Nothing Could Be Better Than You" is a song about having a friend to lean on in hard times. I like this song a lot. "You're My Favorite Person" is an upbeat song about celebrating a special someone. The organ playing by Art Khu is slick and smooth. I love this cut very much. "Dreamin' Praying Wishing" is another highlight. This is a song about all the good things that a friend would want for another friend. I like the hopeful sentiment of this song. Jacqui covers the classic "Moon River". This song is the perfect song to listen to after a hard day. It simply puts my mind at ease. "Lucky Girl" is a very enjoyable album to listen to.
