Genie Walker – jazz vocalist

January 31 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Cutting edge jazz vocalist Genie Walker interprets standards and not so standard jazz compositions with warmth, soul and an innovative flair. She approaches each song with feeling and finesse, whether it’s a silky ballad, swinging bop tune or spirited “scat” improvisation, connecting to her listeners with authenticity and heart.

Genie Walker has toured the US and Europe and appeared at major venues in New York City, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh, PA where she lived, performed and recorded with a host of world class musicians and composers. Her vocal style balances the sophistication of urban life with her down home southern roots growing up in Lexington, Kentucky where Blues, R & B and Bluegrass were part and parcel of her musical experience and education. A seasoned artist, Ms. Walker combines all these influences to create a singular sound which is both entertaining and enriching. Downbeat Magazine has referred to her as “…a voice of purest conviction” and music writer John Swenson writes in the liner notes for her cd, “Not From Concentrate”—“Whatever she’s singing, you can be sure you’re listening to great jazz vocals when Genie Walker takes the microphone.”

Genie Walker will be accompanied by guitarist Michael Friedman.
