In Summer 2010 Ian Shaw went into the famous ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS with a sextet including bass legend PETER IND and recorded The Abbey Road Sessions

Ian Shaw has recorded a stunning collection of new arrangements, from a darkly powerful take on Cole Porter's "GET OUT OF TOWN", through Dori Kaymmi's "OBSESSION", to a shimmering new reharmonization of the Michael Jackson classic, "HUMAN NATURE".

Ian and his regular collaborator, guitarist DAVID PRESTON went into the famous ABBEY ROAD STUDIOS with a cross generational sextet, that includes bass legend, PETER IND. The novelist Robert Ryan was present. ?I was fortunate enough to be there for part of that day at Abbey Road, so I find it hard to dissociate listening to this album from the electricity and excitement that sparked in both the studio and the booth, as Ian and the band parsed the whole jazz-song lexicon in just 13 tracks and seven highly individual musicians melded into a single tight unit.?

THE ABBEY ROAD SESSIONS is a return to the band format for Shaw and is a further testament to this highly popular ("Our fave jazz singer", TIME OUT) UK artist's continuing development as an important face on the world's jazz stage. ("Shaw is close to greatness" THE PENGUIN GUIDE TO JAZZ)
