Cartoon Jazz II feat: Ian Shaw

Ian Shaw, with the Bristol Jazz Festival Chorus and the Big Buzzard Boogie Band

This choral jazz extravaganza of over 300 voices brings smiles to Colston Hall every year. In 2015 the Cartoon Jazz audience spilled out of Hall 1 led by the band and this year you can expect more of that Hollywood-style – featuring some of your favourite songs from the ’toons from the 1950s to the 21st century, Flintstones to Octonauts, with some Roobarb on the side. This year the incomparable British jazz superstar Ian Shaw joins us. Shaw is widely recognised as one of the world’s leading jazz singers. The songs are being arranged specially for this show, and will be played by the musicians who make up the Big Buzzard Boogie Band. 

Ian Shaw: “the gifted, technically awesome and theatrically witty singer whose improvisational skill and gambler’s instinct to work on everything”  The Guardian
