Although still recording and performing today, her best material are the tracks she recorded for Cadet in the 60's and Blue Note in the 70's. Real music, sung from the heart. Incredible voice that just seems perfect for a chilled out, relaxing Sunday. By equal measures versatile, unique and oozing soul, Marlena Shaw is so much more than just "California Soul".
A good starting place for anyone, like me, who hasn't heard much of her material is her Anthology album, released on the Soul Brother label back in 2010.
