New York, NY, February 2, 2011-Following her two recent successful shows there during the month of January, Linda Baker will again be performing live at the Polo Grill and Bar in Lakewood Ranch, Florida on Saturday, February 5, 2011, from 7:00-10:00 PM, and on Saturday, February 19, 2011, from 7:00-10:00 PM.

". . . smooth, polished and natural."-Lily Emeralde and Emma Dyllan, Phosphorescence Magazine

At Polo Grill and Bar Ms. Baker will again be performing some songs from her most recent successful CD, Walking on Air, with the addition this time, of other songs from the great American songbook. Walking on Air, a synthesis of all her previous work and experiences, was shaped and documented by Linda's team of collaborators, conductor/producer John Yaffe' and recording engineer Patrick Lo Re. On this engaging CD, Linda's radiant vocals float like ice on a hot stove above a top notch jazz quintet playing superlative arrangements by Mike Abene. The wonderfully fresh, smart and funny swing tunes, Latin-inflected beats and poignant ballads on Walking on Air makes one want to hear more from Linda Baker and seeing her perform live fulfills that promise in a particularly dynamic and special way.

"She has a dusky voice . . . very much has a sound of her own . . . one that very quickly grabs your attention . . ."
-Joe Lang, Jersey Jazz

Baker has performed numerous gigs in Jazz venues around New York City and participated in several workshops with jazz great Tierney Sutton. For three years she studied with veteran jazz singer Ann Marie Moss and briefly with Jackie Paris. Most recently she has been studying with acclaimed singer and voice teacher Juliana Janes-Yaffe', whom Linda first met while attending the Musical Theatre Program at New York University, and Carol Fredette, vocal jazz coach extraordinaire.

"Baker is one of those New York ladies that just oozes sex appeal and smarts. Hot stuff throughout . . ."
-Chris Spector, Midwest Record
