artist: Ian Shaw

title: The Theory Of Joy

label: Harmonia Mundi / Jazz Village

mastered by: Nick Watson

from CultureLiverpool.co.uk :

“Distinctive, creative and original, Ian Shaw is widely regarded to be one of the greatest male jazz vocalists in the world, with his exquisite interpretations of popular classics and accomplished original material. Twice winner of the BBC Jazz Award his talent and technical ability is undeniable, and new album The Theory of Joy sees him at his best as both a singer and musician.”

from LondonJazzNews.com :

“This CD finds Ian Shaw not sitting in his apparently natural habitat at a piano, but having replaced his own accompaniment with an excellent trio…

…Mick Hutton must surely produce the most sonorous double bass tone in London, and he uses it to great effect here and throughout the album…

…This collection has great variety, yet is defined at its core by four top-class musicians on their own terms…   Cracking.”
