New York, NY - Critically acclaimed jazz vocalist, Michelle Walker, will perform in concert as a trio at the intimate jazz club The Bar Next Door in its widely loved lounge. Michelle will be performing on Monday January 27, 2014 with 2 Sets: 8:30 pm and 10:30 pm.

Armed with a provocative, whiskey-soaked tone, jazz vocalist Michelle Walker is a charismatic singer that uses an artful blend of blues, bebop, swing and soul with playful rhythmic expressiveness. Based in New York City, she bends the lines and pushes the boundaries of jazz vocal art. With rich colors and adventurous flexibility, she moves easily from a dark, deep tone to a mid-range, swinging lilt. Highlights of her career include multiple tours in Europe, performing in the Lincoln Center Women in Jazz Festival and performing at the White House for the lighting of the National Christmas Tree. Dave Nathan at AllAboutJazz.com says, “Walker demonstrates an extraordinary degree of musicality..."

Michelle is often compared to Cassandra Wilson, Nina Simone and Betty Carter in style and tone but has develop her own unique sound and singular voice..

She has opened in concert for Wynton Marsalis, Rene Marie, Terrell Stafford, Chris Botti, George Benson and Mark Murphy. Her arrangements of straight-ahead standards and contemporary pop tunes blend genres effortlessly and with an undeniable level of originality that is solidifying her own distinctive sound.

Tucked underneath La Lanterna di Vittorio, a dark, moody bi-level Italian restaurant, Bar Next Door is a hidden gem that’ll only cost you a small cover charge and one drink (try the Passion Fruit Champagne Cocktail, or one of the bazillion wines on offer). Seating is snug in this small room, but that only makes for a more intimate concert provided by high-caliber jazz musicians. The room can get packed with the dessert-and-Dizzy crowd, but jazz enthusiasts are better off coming early for a cozy meal of top-notch thin-crust pizza and snagging a good table before the show starts.
