Marlena Shaw can do pop and R&B, but her work with the likes of Howard McGhee and Count Basie provides her with solid jazz credentials. Here she belts out a swinging rendition of “Go Away Little Boy” with the gusto and know-how of a Nancy Wilson or Dinah Washington, obviously inspired by the rocking big band arrangements of Richard Evans & Charles Stepney.
