His earlier UK recordings include three on the Ronnie Scott’s Jazzhouse record label. On the strength of these Shaw was signed to the Milestone label for whom his first release was a co-billing with piano legend Cedar Walton (In A New York Minute - 1999). This was followed up by Soho Stories, again with Cedar Walton. A World Still Turning (recorded at the famous Avatar Studio in 2003) had guests including pianist Billy Childs and featured a duet with Shaw’s mentor, Mark Murphy. Shaw’s acclaimed 2006 album Drawn To All Things – The Songs of Joni Mitchell saw him “Praised far and wide as the single greatest male jazz vocalist the UK has to offer” by Jazz Times (USA). Ian’s 2012 album, A Ghost In Every Bar, inspired Jazz Times to report: “The Welsh vocalist remains the gentlest of troubadours and most nakedly magical of storytellers”. Ian currently hosts the weekly Ronnie Scott’s Radio Show, broadcast on the UK’s Jazz FM and stations in Canada ,US and in-flight on British Airways. http://www.ianshaw.biz/ https://www.facebook.com/ianshawjazz/ https://www.youtube.com/user/ianshawjazz Terms & Conditions No refunds or exchanges allowed.
