Marlena Shaw was not only a one-trick pony. Over sixty years were spent in her work. She experimented with several musical styles including jazz, blues, and soul when she was in the limelight. “It’s with a very heavy heart for myself and my family I announce that our beloved mother, your beloved icon and artist Marlena Shaw has passed away today at 12:03,” Marlena’s daughter said in a video that was uploaded on Friday.</p>
<p>Marla Bradshaw went on, “She was serene.” She went to listen to some of her favorite tunes, and we were at ease.</p>
<p><strong>Fans lament the passing</strong></p>
<p><strong>Marlena Shaw was a person.</strong><br />
Shaw, who was well-known for her range as a vocalist, rose to prominence in 1966 after signing with Chess Records. The American jazz vocalist put out two albums under its Cadet Records subsidiary: Out of Different Bags in 1967 and The Spice of Life in 1969. Her breakthrough came with these albums, which included the hits Woman of the Ghetto and California Soul.</p>
<p>Marlena Shaw switched to Blue Note Records, a separate record label, in 1972. Marlena, From the Depths of My Soul, and Just a Matter of Time are just a few of the songs she created. She later released Sweet Beginnings via Columbia Records in 1977.</p>
<p>“We are saddened by the passing of Marlena Shaw, a wonderful singer whose ‘California Soul’ is as popular today as it ever was and whose album ‘It Is Love: Recorded Live At Vine St.’ helped relaunch the Verve label in 1987,” the Verve record, with whom Shaw worked in 1987, said in a statement to Hollywood.</p>
