"What's New" – Ian Shaw | Iain Ballamy | Jamie Safir
"Three great jazz voices entwining. Captivating" – Robert Elms BBC Radio London

What's New is a new collaboration between three of the UK's leading jazz musicians playing in chamber format: legendary saxophonist and composer Iain Ballamy (Gil Evans, Bill Bruford, Joanna MacGregor, Carla Bley), his contemporary, vocalist Ian Shaw (Quincy Jones, Kurt Elling, Cedar Walton, Liane Carroll) and one of the finest young pianists of his generation Jamie Safir (Claire Martin, Will Young, Alice Zawadzki, Judi Jackson).

The album focusses on the sonic and emotional connection of the voice with Ballamy's saxophone and with the young Safir's astonishing piano stylings, affording the three musicians more space to stretch out.

The material is about human connections – friendships, relationships, positive and otherwise – and plunders 80 years of the popular song form.

Featuring new arrangements of songs of love and hope – from the title song to Bernstein's Some Other Time as well as the Bacharach and David classics Alfie and You'll Never Get To Heaven – it also draws on the connection of Ballamy and Shaw who have known one another almost since the start of both their careers – Iain appeared on four of Ian's albums in the earlier days – so this work is a timely reunion.

Ian introduces What's New – "one of the truest records I have ever recorded"

Ian Shaw "A profoundly sophisticated artist with a broad grasp of music's mechanics, as well as an affecting, emotional and sometimes very funny singer" – The Guardian


Iain Ballamy "Intensely melodic, eventful and full of surprises… The beauty of tone that Iain Ballamy gets is certainly one of the joys of the current scene, and his concern with creating it echoes Stan Getz's" – Andy Hamilton


Jamie Safir "Jamie on piano was riveting. I got the nightbus home…Oh the glamour!" – Julian Clary
