Ian Shaw

At the 2006 BBC Jazz Awards (where Shaw was nominated Best Vocalist), Shaw was invited to sing with the legendary Quincy Jones. His recent Linn album, “Drawn To All things, The Songs Of Joni Mitchell” has garnered worldwide praise and was the first successful solo artist tribute to this highly regarded songwriter. Shaw toured the album for a year, taking in the major festivals and making his debut at the prestigious Sunset Sunside Club in Paris. These shows were as a result of Shaw being nominated as Best Vocalist in the Academie du Jazz at the close of the year
