Ian Shaw


Linn Records is pleased to announce jazz vocalist Ian Shaw's solo debut recording on their UK based label.   A much anticipated album of re-workings of songs by Joni Mitchell, a personal heroine of Ian's.   Drawn to all things features classic Joni Mitchell songs spanning her incredible career.

Ian Shaw is already well known both in the UK and the United States, having succeeded in comedy and theatre before deciding to concentrate on a career in jazz.   Ian has performed with some of the UK's top jazz musicians, including Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor and Cleo Laine, as well as fellow Linn artist Barb Jungr.   Ian has an ongoing and highly popular duet show with Claire Martin and [was a guest artist] on her 2003 Linn album “Too Darn Hot!” (Linn AKD 243).   Together they have toured the world in an intimate duo setting with Shaw playing piano or sometimes with the BBC Big Band, a band with whom, over the last five years, Shaw has cemented a highly popular musical relationship.   Ian was also a guest artist on Sarah Moule's 2002 album “It's A Nice Thought” (Linn AKD 192).
