We just love it that Marlena Shaw, born 1942, is considered one of the hottest singers by the ultra-cool hip hop producers and DJs in the country! Check out "Woman of The Ghetto" - remixed by Flume's
"Verve Remixed is a series of albums made of tracks of famous mainly Jazz singers of yesteryear that are remixed by many of today's popular electronic and DJ music producers and makers and that have met with great success for the past 11 years straight. You've probably heard many of these tunes whilst standing in line at a Starbucks and definitely at an event I've dj'd ! ; ) Their latest series, out this month, is entitled " The First Ladies" and it is dedicated solely to some of the greatest Jazz singer divas the World has ever known, and getting touched up , remixed and set ablaze! My favorite so far : Marlena Shaw "Woman of the Ghetto" getting the redux by hot new music makers "Flume". Enjoy!"
