This performance by Chaka Khan, recorded in 1993 at the Blue Note Jazz Club in New York City features a number of songs closely associated with jazz

Chaka Khan has been performing for almost 50 years. The multi-platinum, Grammy Award singer began her career in the early 1970's with the pre-eminent funk group Rufus. A beautiful and dynamic vocalist, Chaka was raised on Chicago's South Side. She began her career as a solo artist interestingly, singing jazz. Her fame however, came with contemporary solo funk hits like 'I Feel For You' and the classic 'I'm Every Woman,' which she successfully recorded 10 years before Whitney Houston's cover version.
This 1993 live performance at New York's intimate jazz club The Blue Note, finds Chaka in the musical environment that she has always felt most creative. In great voice and surrounded by five great jazzmen, she performs a rare catalog of songs closely associated with jazz. Several of which cannot be found on other recordings. She sings the Ellington/Strayhorn 'Take The 'A' Train,' Rodgers and Hart's 'My Funny Valentine,' plus 'Summertime' and 'I Loves You Porgy' from Gershwin's folk opera 'Porgy and Bess.'
This is a unique, rare and exciting live performance recorded at the peak of her vocal prowess. And the combination of her definitive vocal talent, seen live, offers a great 'ENCORE' concert performance.
