Ian Shaw & Steve Taylor Trio
Shaw is winner of “Best Jazz Vocalist” at the BBC Jazz Awards 2007 and 2004 and has amassed a number of highly acclaimed albums. He is a renowned performer both in the UK and the US and has been cited, along with Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling, as one of the world's finest male jazz vocalists.
In 2010 Shaw joined an historical legacy of artists and recorded his first Abbey Road studio album. Shaw and guitarist collaborator, David Preston, assembled a stellar, international, cross-generational band resulting in a recording that led Jamie Cullum to say "the incomparable Ian Shaw… absolutely fantastic" and reflects Shaw's position as one of the world's leading jazz singers.
His acclaimed 2006 album “Drawn to All Things - the songs of Joni Mitchell” saw him “Praised far and wide as the single greatest male jazz vocalist Britain has to offer” by Jazz Times.
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”.
Collaborators over the years have been many and include Quincy Jones, Abudullah Ibrahim, Guy Barker, Claire Martin, Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor, Iain Ballamy, Barb Jungr, Cleo Laine, John Dankworth, Cedar Walton, Shaw was, for some time, presenter on BBC Big Band Special on Radio 2 and is also a regular on BBC Radios 2, 3 and 4 and the recently revamped Jazz FM where he guest presented their legendary ‘Dinner Jazz’ show alongside the likes of Bruce Forsyth. He can also be heard on the Ronnie Scott's radio show.

GILL MANLY ACOUSTIC BLUES TRIO
‘Expect, joy, foot-stomping and passion, and laughter, laced with gorgeous harmonies’
Gill Manly, a jewel in the crown of British Jazz and Blues, performs with her acoustic blues musicians, Trevor Hyett (mandolin mandola), and Thomas Coffey (acoustic guitar). She is a regular headliner at Ronnie Scott’s, famously with her critically acclaimed show “Portrait of Nina Simone”. The rich tradition of blues and gospel music was always a huge love. Gill’s eclectic approach to song choice means she has delved into composers such as Dory Previn, Doc Pomus, Bill Withers, Percy Mayfield, as well as Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Mississippi Fred MacDowell.
"Gill's voice is nothing short of electric....singers with this much control and technique are a scarcity nowadays." JAZZ ON CD MAGAZINE
