Marlena Shaw started her career singing in jazz clubs after her uncle introduced her to music through his record collection of jazz greats. In 1966 she signed to the legendary Chicago- based Soul label, Chess records and released her first two albums on their subsidiary label Cadet Records while simultaneously fronting the incredible Count Basie Band.
