The collaboration between Ian Shaw (voice), Iain Ballamy (tenor sax) and Jamie Safir (piano).
“Forever insightful and quirky vocalist Ian Shaw warmly celebrates timeless songwriters from Bernstein to Bacharach with ideal foils in saxophonist/composer Iain Ballamy and piano rising star Jamie Safir on What's New.” John Fordham, The Guardian.
Alfie performed by Ian Shaw (voice), Iain Ballamy (tenor sax) and Jamie Safir (piano). From their album What's New. Recorded at their recent session at Jazz FM.
We Stopped Talking is a new song – a letter to love, community and diversity, inspired by Robert Elms’ critically praised book, London Made Us to raise much needed funds, in uncertain times, for the hugely compromised homeless, rough sleepers and vulnerable refugees. Ian's co-writer is Jamie Safir, who produced the song and edited the video.
Ian plays six nights in Europe, 22nd – 30th March. Joined by Barry Green on piano (Cologne, Mannheim, Hamburg, Berlin and Vienna) and his trio (Basel).
