Marlena Shaw
Marlena Shaw, the first female vocalist signed by Blue Note Records in 1972, has never strayed far from her jazz roots. A former singer with the Count Basie Orchestra, she swings with ease and authority, has a mastery of space an timing . . .[and] every phrase she utters has a delightfully improvisatory feel, notes critic Richard Chon. She has the ability to highlight the dramatic possibilities of the simplest lyric. Her sassy, humorous onstage presence is as entertaining as her singing.
