Shine Sister Shine with the Bristol Jazz Festival Chorus

SHINE SISTER SHINE WITH THE BRISTOL JAZZ FESTIVAL CHORUS at Clifton Cathedral Fri 23 November 2018 from 7pm

Shine Sister Shine with the Bristol Jazz Festival Chorus

As part of their Winter Concert Series Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival presents...Ian Shaw: Shine Sister Shine with the Bristol Jazz Festival Chorus.

Ian Shaw is one of the most distinctive, original and creative jazz singers that the UK has produced. His most recent album, “Shine Sister Shine” (Jazz Village) has received universal praise and is a celebration of the actions and art of extraordinary women – “an album crammed with sharp pain, deeply felt, then countered with soaring, resonant hope” (Stella Duffy). Moved by recent world events - the election of a cartoon president whose life is more suited to the high-end romps of a glossy pin-up mag hero - and the subsequent rallying of millions of women, Shaw has penned new songs reflecting two years ’ working alongside refugees.

Shaw is known as one of the jazz world's supreme interpreters of the popular song form - here showcasing dazzling new arrangements of works by Peggy Lee, Phoebe Snow, Joni Mitchell, Carly Simon, as well as friends and collaborators closer to home - Sarah Jane Morris, Gwyneth Herbert, Judith Owen, Julie Matthews and Tanita Tikaram.

In this special Bristol Jazz and Blues Festival event, he appears with his brilliant trio Barry Green, Mick Hutton and Dave Ohm along with the Bristol Jazz Festival Chorus.
