KCH welcomes this Detroit jazz heroine to its stage! Celebrate her KCH debut with a glass of cheer served at a cash bar provided by sponsor SEMJA (Southeastern Michigan Jazz Association). This performance is supported by the Don Chisholm Friends of Jazz at Kerrytown Concert House.
Naima Shamborguer has carried on the great jazz tradition of Sarah Vaughan, Horace Silver, Thelonious Monk, Charlie Parker, and Carmen McRae. In her newest CD, 'Round Midnight.
“One of Detroit’s most gifted jazz singers, Naima Shamborguer, ups the ante on this often magical collection of ballads with her dark and richly textured voice and pinpoint pitch, Shamborguer brings a nuance of a natural storyteller and relaxed time- feel of a true jazz musician”
Mark Stryker- Detroit Free Press Music Critic
It is no secret that Naima Shamborguer has the chops and proves time and again that she does. From a Detroit family of professional musicians who musically trained her, she developed her highly artistic and fine polished vocal abilities as a youth. Naima sang at church, and concerts performing classical and jazz music.
The early years make up Naima’s unique eclectic style, with clear diction, and warm stage presence while performing jazz standards, Latin jazz, and be-bop. She has an uncanny knack for selecting beautiful ballads, which move an audience and capture the heart and soul of their emotions and feelings with her smooth, sultry sound.
A “Motown” treasure, Naima has performed nationwide with the finest jazz masters known throughout the world including, Larry Willis, Steve Davis, Geri Allen, Bob Hurst, Berry Harris, Freddie Hubbard, Kenny Burrell, James Carter, Steve Turre, Aqua Dixon, Rodney Whitaker, Claude “Fiddler” Williams, Wendell Harrison, Donald Byrd, Donald Walden, Dwight Adams, Marion Hayden and Marcus Belgrave, Vincent Bowen, George Davidson, Ken Cox, Ron Brooks, Charlie Gabriel, Vincent Chandler. Rave reviews from jazz critics consistently appraise her musical talents and skills as one of the finest jazz song stylist.
