IAN SHAW's NEW CD OUT THIS WEEK - "Our best jazz singer" - Time Out.
Ian's new CD The Abbey Road Sessions (SPR012CD) is launched on 9th & 10th March at Pizza Express Jazz Club. There are a few tickets left for the Wednesday show so please book now!

Jazzwise feature Ian in this month's issue - "his voice has never sounded better . . . Shaw's take-no-prisoners approach carried the day". The album is a brand new bag of arrangements from Cole Porter's Get Out Of Town, through Stealers Wheel's pop classic, Stuck In The Middle With You, to a shimmering new arrangement of the Michael Jackson hit, Human Nature.
Along with a stellar cross-generational international line-up, the presence of the legendary Peter Ind on bass duties made the session at Abbey Road an unforgettable day.

You can buy the album here or pre-order a digital copy from iTunes here.

To celebrate the launch we have released a wonderful film of the making of the album. (See below).

SUE RICHARDSON - "Irritatingly talented" - Radio4 Woman's Hour
Sue has some great gigs coming up around the UK: Wales, Brighton, London and Manchester. She is also off to Holland and Italy this Spring as part of her work for her new project, Too Cool, a tribute to Chet Baker.Sue's new album Fanfare has received great reviews.
The Times gig review – “At the end of her opening set she even set sail into the audience, firing off a tattoo of notes on the irresistible, hand-clapping calypso beat of Out for a Duck"
The Observer CD review – Trumpet-playing singer-songwriter Sue Richardson is anything but a gimmick, says Dave Gelly
JazzUK CD review – “The whole package just oozes panache and undoubtedly makes for a memorable live set, with Richardson on excellent form both vocally and instrumentally”
Jazzwise CD review - "Sue has the kind of bright, well-grounded sound and technique that most trumpeters would envy and develops her improvisations confidently”
London JazzBlog Royal Albert Hall gig review - "Sue has natural warmth; being with her would make you feel better”

We're delighted that we have some special nights at this lovely, intimate West London venue: Ian Shaw on the 18th then Sue Richardson's Quintet on the 19th. Book now!

We have 2 new albums for you to listen to this month. Singers Debbie Gould and Krista Wells have both released their music on our download label. Also on Splash Point Digital, Zena James launched Captivated last month with great reviews: "Soulful unpretentiousness and solid musicianship. The disc (Captivated) reminds us of the persistent appeal of the blues and gospel roots of jazz. Very few jazz followers could argue soundly with the outcome or James’s ever persuasive voice." Jazz Journal
We'll have some more music from British artists next month to keep you entertained!

Here's to shedding the thermal undies and showing off more flesh! Happy Spring.
