One of the first female vocalists signed by Blue Note Records, Marlena Shaw has never strayed far from her jazz roots. A former singer with the Count Basie Orchestra, she has the ability to highlight the dramatic possibilities of the simplest lyric, while her sassy, humorous onstage presence is as entertaining as her singing. She performs with pianist Andrew Adair, bassist James King, and drummer Lennie Robinson. Part of Blue Note at 75.
