Marlena Shaw has endured decades of singing in the shadows, and she has only now finally found her niche.
"California Soul" is probably the most enduring and well-known of her many songs, but just a few seconds listening will tell you that it is much more than that. It’s already a classic amongst those who have already seen the light and have danced and swayed to its timeless swing. Now is the time that this wonderful song is released once more, and upon hearing it all lovers of soul, jazz, or any other kind of good music, will feel an aural glow as warm as the Californian sun.
