Artist Profile: Genie Walker Jazz Vocalist
"...A riveting voice of purest conviction." That's how critic Fred Brouchard of Downbeat Magazine describes jazz vocalist Genie Walker. A skilled interpreter of standards and not so standard compositions, Ms. Walker delivers the essence of the lyric and the melody directly to the heart of the listener. She transports her audiences with silky ballads, swinging bop tunes and "scat" improvisations that are full of spirit and suspense. In the Rolling Stone Guide to Jazz Records, John Swenson states that Genie Walker's "...vocal pyrothechnics are both challenging and entertaining".
Genie Walker has toured the US and Europe and appeared at many major venues in New York City such as the Public Theater, Town Hall, Damrosch Park at Lincoln Center, The Museum of Modern Art, The Kitchen, P.S. 1. Tavern on the Green, the Plaza Hotel, Maxim’s, the Waldorf Hotel, the Angry Squire, 55 Bar and Tramps to name a few. In Philadelphia she has performed in such elegant venues as the Crystal Tea Room, the Ritz Carlton, Meiji-en as well as at the Trump Taj Mahal Casino in Atlantic City.
