Salena Jones was born in the same town as Ella Fitzgerald, and has gone on to sing with jazz greats such as Sarah Vaughan.
She's just opened a new restaurant, jazz and music room in London, in an effort to promote not only jazz, but a broad range of live music.
She will perform there regularly herself, as well as inviting both British and visiting artists to appear.
Salena talks about her new venture and performs live in the Woman's Hour studio.
Salena Jones's Restaurant, Jazz and Music Room is at Shepherd's Bush, 184 Uxbridge Road. For more details click on the link.
