Chaka Khan has been singing for 35 years. The multi-platinum, Grammy Award singer began her career in the early 1970’s with the pre-imminent 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 1992 live performance at New York’s famed 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 whichcannot be found on her 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 rare and exciting live performance, never seen before. And the combination of her definitive vocal talent, seen live, offers a great "ENCORE" concert performance.
