New York, NY - Critically acclaimed jazz vocalist Michelle Walker will perform the early set on Thursday July 24, 2014 at one of New York City’s most established and loved music watering-hole stages, The 55 BAR. Her sets will consist of originals, new and old standards with her refreshing and engaging arrangements starting promptly at 7:00pm. NO COVER. Joining her will be Ron Affif, Michael O'Brien and Sean Fitzpatrick.

Walker has spent the past few years amassing an impressive musical resume of European, US and Asian tours, concert and festival performances. 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."
