Join Jazz singer and entertainer Ian Shaw as he presents some of his favourite songs. Expect music drawn from the rich vein of the Great American Songbook through to the cherished contemporary songwriters – Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie and Stevie Wonder – alongside anecdotes from his life on the road and more. There will also be a sprinkling of Shaws pithy original lyrics that draw on the quirkiness of the human condition – a satirical take on good living, dodgy politics and the perils of yoga at 60.
Ian has been a staple on the British Jazz scene for over three decades and is widely regarded as the best male Jazz singer it has produced. He tours constantly in this country and internationally, with several of his recorded output being on US labels. Whether solo at the piano, with his trio or as the special guest with orchestras, he remains the consummate entertainer and his recordings and live performances have been recognised by numerous awards.
For more than ten years he has presented the weekly Ronnie Scotts Radio Show on Jazz FM and has recently added podcasting to his repertoire, with Not Even Music now in its third series.
A brilliant vocal chameleon . . . there is actually more heart in Ian Shaws cleverness than in many singers who wear their hearts conspicuously on their sleeves – Telegraph

Shaw brings the quirks and character tics of everyday living into poignant, ironic and often euphoric focus… smart and soulful
