New York, NY - Critically acclaimed jazz vocalist, Michelle Walker, will perform in concert at one of New York’s most exclusive jazz clubs Jazz at the Kitano (http://www.kitano.com/Jazz-Schedule) in its widely adored lounge. Michelle will be performing on Wednesday May 21, 2014 with 8:00pm and 10:00pm Sets.

Michelle has spent the past few years amassing an international resume of concert and festival performances, including The Lincoln Center-Women in Jazz Festival, The Silver Spring Jazz Festival as well as international tours in Russia, England and Israel as a leader and guest vocalist.

Michelle is often compared to Cassandra Wilson, Nina Simone and Betty Carter in style and tone. 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. Dave Nathan at All About Jazz says, Walker sings with “an extraordinary degree of musicality."

Walk thru the glass door, ground-floor entrance just a few steps off Park Avenue and you will be welcomed into the beautiful and contemporary jazz lounge at The Kitano Hotel. It is simply one of the finest rooms to hear live, intimate jazz while you enjoy dinner and drinks. This is a polished and sophisticated jazz room that attracts a knowledgeable music crowd.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
