Description by

Marlena Shaw started her career as a solo act. She soon came to the attention of Count Basie, whose band she sang with for four years. In the early '70s, she soon went on her own again and gained a reputation as one of the most versatile vocalists on the Jazz scene. She exhibits all her colors on this disc, which includes her most requested songs.

Product Description:

Culled from her Blue Note recordings, these 18 cuts feature many of her disco sides, which are not to be confused with Tom Moulton master mixes. One wonders what Blue Note's hierarchy had in mind; the sides are totally foreign from their usual output. The ballads are the most satisfying, especially "Yu-Ma/Go Away Little Boy," where she admonishes her man before dismissing him from her life. It's the only thing close to golden, though "I Think I'll Tell Him" is pleasing; ballads are her forte, and she should have done more. To say Marlena's stint at Blue Note Records didn't live up to expectations is an understatement. ~ Andrew Hamilton
