Shaw ballamy safir

Ian Shaw with Iain Ballamy and Jamie Safir *THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED AND RESCHEDULED FOR Thursday 12 November [email protected] Arts 8pm

Big-hitter vocalist Ian Shaw, urbane saxophonist and composer Iain Ballamy, and in-demand pianist Jamie Safir perform in Leeds as part of their “What’s New” tour.

One of the world’s finest male jazz vocalists, Ian Shaw, teams up with legendary UK saxophonist, Iain Ballamy (who has played with Hermeto Pascoal, Loose Tubes, Norma Winstone) and irrepressibly brilliant pianist Jamie Safir (Will Young, Elaine Delmar, Judi Jackson).

Ian has sung with Quincy Jones, Cleo Laine and Al Jarreau, and with Kurt Elling’s The Big Blind. He is the recipient of two BBC Jazz Awards and a Parliamentary Jazz Award, he can be found on stage at Ronnie Scott’s and at concerts around the world. Saxophone soloist Iain Ballamy has collaborated with Hermeto Pascoal and Cedar Walton and was a founder member of Loose Tubes. Still in his twenties, Jamie Safir has worked with Claire Martin, Elaine Delmar and Clare Teal and regularly performs with Will Young. He co-produced Barb Jungr’s acclaimed 2019 album Bob, Brel & Me and is releasing his debut album as leader in 2020.  

Expect a gloriously lyrical travelogue from early American song through Ellington, Horace Silver and Billy Strayhorn to Joni Mitchell. With Shaw’s comedy chops, Ballamy’s ability to push a melody somewhere magical, and Safir’s symphonic piano playing, there’s plenty to look forward to…
