Despite a stellar career as a saxophone player and blues musician with hits like Pension Day Blues and Pemulwuy, Marlene is only now preparing to release her full debut album, Koori Woman Blues.
The album presents a biographical journey comprised of a mixture of original and traditional blues numbers. The album’s centrepiece is the stirring epic blues anthem, Koori Woman.
Marlene dedicates this song to Aboriginal women everywhere as they were, in her words, ‘the backbone of the struggle’.
The album features a sterling cast of some of the world’s finest blues musicians including Gil Askey on trumpet, Fiona Boyes, Buddy Knox, Ray Beadle, Jerome Smith on guitar, Mark Atkins on didgeridoo, Joel Davis, Murray Cook on keys, Stefan Sernak (accordion), Andy Baylor (mandolin), Shannon Barnett on trombone, Paul Williamson on baritone sax and Marlene herself on alto sax.
