Some of you may have seen our feature in appreciation of Marlena Shaw who died at 81 last Friday. We were obviously very saddened to hear of her passing, she was a very special talent and responsible for some of the finest music in soul, jazz and beyond. See Laurence’s words and the full feature here.
