Android - Shuffle Songs within a playlist

This isn't rocket surgery.  I have an Android, with multiple music players on it.  I have multiple playlists, various ones for various situations, along with several that are educational.  It is really pretty simple, sometimes I want to listen to tunes, of a particular variety, and sometimes, I need/want to listen to something educational.

Is there any music player, I don't care what it costs, that can shuffle a single playlist, and then play the songs within that playlist exclusively?  Then, when I want to select a new playlist, play that one exclusively.  This is really frustrating-----something this simple, no software seems to be able to do.

To my understanding the playlist is just that a set of media files placed onto a media player then a playlist is saved for them and instead of loading each file it loads them all from that particular playlist. So if you made a playlist for various music type each time you use just that playlist it will only play the files in that list.
In order to shuffel that playlist, ie plays those files in no set order that is what shuffel means should be in the media player play settings.
You didnt mention what you currently use
Shuffle Player (MP3 music)

I use Power Amp, and not long after I posted this question, I realized that it would do what I wanted.  Simply select "SORT"->"SHUFFLE (Random Sort)"->"RE-SORT."  This is really counter-intuitive, but it works just as I would like.  Then I can simply repeat the playlist endlessly, and occasionally re-sort.
