PARIS CAT DEBUT – NOT TO BE MISSED - ONLY 2 SHOWS IN MELBOURNE
Twice winner of the prestigious BBC Jazz Awards for best vocalist, Ian Shaw, the London based singer and consummate showman, finally tours Australia. With a string of US and UK recorded albums and collaborations with the likes of Quincy Jones, Van Morrison, Claire Martin, Cleo Laine, Kenny Wheeler, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Kurt Elling, he has toured with Abdullah Ibrahim, The Boston Pops and Cedar Walton, as well as solo (he plays piano too) and with his own band. A regular headline draw at London’s iconic Ronnie Scott’s (he also presents their worldwide radio show) Shaw has regularly toured the US and Canada.
For these Australian tour dates, Shaw is hooking up with ace local trios to present his eclectic, soulful swinging mix of songs from Porter and Sondheim to new arrangements of Bowie and Joni Mitchell and for these two nights in the beautiful Parisian Loft at the Paris Cat Jazz Club, Ian is joined by the Grant Windsor Trio.
