Salena Jones

After that French lesson we now have a singer that should have been more popular than she  was...Just checked on her on "Wikipedia" and she has been very succsessful and has quiet a write up on there worth having a look if anybody is interested.....she now lives in Ascot at the ripe age of 86 or maybe 72...bit of mix up when she was born

  Several reliable sources, including 60 Years of Recorded Jazz, 1917–1967 by Walter Bruyninckx,[1] and The Encyclopedia Yearbooks of Jazz by Leonard Feather,[2] give January 29, 1930 as the date of birth of the singer Joan Shaw. The liner notes for her 1961 LP Joan Shaw Sings For Swingers, also written by Feather, state that she "...began singing in amateur programs around town from the time she was 13. Within a couple of years she had graduated to local night clubs, and soon she had her first fling in New York, trying out in the amateur hour at the Apollo Theater. Soon after, in 1948, she was hired as band vocalist with a group led by Paul Williams....".[3] It is clear and uncontested that Joan Shaw later began using the name Salena Jones, after moving to England. However, the sources for Joan Shaw conflict with other sources such as AllMusic,[4] and The Rough Guide to Jazz,[5] which give Salena Jones' date of birth as January 29, 1944.
