Ian Shaw, Iain Ballamy, Jamie Safir in 'What's New'

Pizza Express Jazz Club, W1D 3RW , [Venue Details]

This exciting trio collaboration sees legendary UK saxophonist, Iain Ballamy (Hermeto Pascoal, Loose Tubes, Norma Winstone) team up with Shaw and irrepressibly brilliant pianist Jamie Safir (Will Young, Elaine Delmar, Kyle Minogue).

Expect a gloriously lyrical travelogue from early American song through Ellington, Horace Silver and Billy Strayhorn to Joni Mitchell. They play from their 2019 recording, ‘What’s New’ (Silent Wish Records).

Their interplay also draws on the connection of Ballamy and Shaw who have known one another almost since the start of both their careers. The material is about human connections - friendships, relationships, positive and otherwise - and plunders 80 years of the popular song form.

These are new arrangements of songs of love and hope – from the title song of their recording to Bernstein’s 'Some Other Time' as well as the Bacharach/David classics 'Alfie' and 'You’ll Never Get To Heaven' alongside works by Legrand, Jobim and Ellington.
