Naomi, in addition to being an internationally respected saxophonist, has always been a fan of several contemporary music genres, including blues, jazz, funk, R&B, soul, pop and latin music.
Legendary artists like Stan Getz, Paul Desmond, David Sanborn, Ella Fitzgerald, Grover Washington Jr., The Crusaders, George Benson, Al Jarreau, Spyro Gyra, Stevie Wonder and Fourplay, to name a few, have been the inspiration for her personal funky, urban soul sound.
Her first single "Soul Smile" has been a true bright light, performing well on several prestigious smooth jazz music charts, being ranked #1 in the Radio Indie International Network Top 40, on the WJMX Smooth Jazz Boston Global Internet Radio and on the Unisoul Indie Jazz - R&B Station Top10. The song also reached a #1 position in the Radio Indie Alliance Single Top 10 and Single Top 20. Plus it was a "Hot Chart" single pick in the winter issue of Airplay Magazine.
