Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Marlena Shaw (born Marlina Burgess, September 22, 1942, New Rochelle, New York) is an American singer. Shaw began her singing career in the 1960s and is still singing today. Her music has often been sampled in hip hop music, and used in television commercials. She was first introduced to music by her uncle Jimmy Burgess, a jazz trumpet player. In an interview with The New York Times, she told the reporter "He Jimmy Burge introduced me to good music through records---Dizzy Gillesp, Miles Dav, a lot of gospel things, and Al Hibbler, who really knows how to phrase a song." In 1952, Burgess brought her on stage at the Apollo Theater in Harlem to sing with him and his band.show more
