Dec. 5, 2012 - PRLog -- Spectra Jazz records (a division of the Spectra Music Group LLC ) presents guitarist Michael Walker of Dallas, Texas, with his debut CD A Smoother You”.

The CD is co-produced and written by wunderkind Quentin Moore (also of Dallas, Texas), and exhibits a style that infuses Smooth Jazz  and “Southern Soul”.

Walker (b. Newport, Arkansas - November 19, 1959), began his musical career as a blues guitarist influenced by the legendary B.B. King.

During the year 2000, he switched to R&B and became leader of a local cover band known as “Chill Factor” playing mostly throughout Texas and Tennessee.
After 12 years with the group, he turned his interests towards Smooth Jazz, leaving the band to create the “A Smoother You” project.  
After sending a few preview tracks to producer/guitarist Paul Brown, Michael forged ahead with his project and signed a licensing and distribution deal with Spectra Jazz Records for international release.

In addition to production, writing, and guitar skills, Michael enlists Drummer Kenny Washington II, Quentin Moore (Keyboards, Wah Wah guitar, Bass & Vocals), John Robinson (Bass), Vandell Andrew (Alto Sax), Dunye Nasuhoglu (Congas, Percussion),  Karen Bernod (Chaka Khan and Erykah Badu) (Vocals), Angela Blair (Background Vocals), and Spectra Jazz artist Earl “Tee” Harris of the Los Angeles group“3rd Scenario” (Vocals).

The album is scheduled for release on December 11, 2012 on iTunes and Amazon, with a physical CD release slated for Spring of 2013
