Ian Shaw's career in performance began unusually for a jazz musician on the Alternative Cabaret Circuit, alongside such performers as Julian Clary, Rory Bremner and Jo Brand.
Shaw was spotted by Dave Illic, jazz critic for City Limits and was described as 'the voice of the decade'. He has since gone on to win Best Jazz Vocalist at the BBC Jazz Awards in 2004 and 2007, and has amassed a number of highly acclaimed albums.
A popular performer both in the UK and internationally, Ian Shaw is an incredibly colourful character and has been cited, along with Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling, as one of the world's finest male jazz vocalists.
'A high-class performance of timelessly high-class songs' (The Guardian)
'Praised far and wide as the single greatest male jazz vocalist Britain has to offer' (Jazz Times).

'The greatest voice' in the world, that's how Ian Shaw introduced Madeline Bell. Most singers would find it hard to live up to that accolade but at 68 year old Madeline Bell still has a fantastic voice, not perhaps the best in the world but it is still exceptionally good.
