IAN SHAW with Steve Taylor Trio
Ian Shaw returns to Ziggy’s World Jazz Club at The Dugdale Centre
Best Jazz Vocalist” at the BBC Jazz Awards in 2007 and 2004, and nominated in the Best UK Vocalist category at the JazzFM awards in 2013, Ian Shaw has already amassed a number of highly acclaimed internationally released albums and is a popular performer both in the UK and the US. He has been cited, along with Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling, as one of the world’s finest male jazz vocalists.
Shaw’s current release, his 13th studio album, A Ghost In Every Bar, The Lyrics Of Fran Landesman (Splash Point Records), has been exceptionally well received in Europe and America (see reviews). The recording fulfilled a long-standing promise made to the late poet/lyricist Landesman to make an album devoted to her work. Ian was one of her favourite singers and his past discography includes many of her songs.
