in which he interviews music celebrities like Al Jarreau, Kenny Garrett, Patti Austin and Van Morrison. He is also a stand-up comedian, producer and composer. Shaw has even acted in a theatre production entitled: Jerry Springer: The Opera
. His greatest talent is, however, as a jazz singer. One of his most notable albums is his tribute to Joni Mitchell: Drawn To All Things
(2006). In 2013, he reprised an old passion by performing with a trio, sometimes with a guest vocalist. It was in that setting that he honored Joni Mitchell. Ian Shaw is performing at the North Sea Jazz Festival with Sachal Vasandani
, a singer from New York with a ‘deep-brewed voice’. Vasandani broke through in 2007 with his album Eyes Wide Open.
