Reviews

From customers:

Band, 10 years ago

“Chris Shaw is an awesome player, expertly reading the mood of the audience, moving from smooth and sensitive, to screaming ecstasy as the moment requires.” Andy Broad (Burnt Ice) “This is just a beautiful and emotional saxophone” Tom Robinson - BBC Radio 6 "Thanks for doing such a good job" Thomson Holidays (Tui Ltd) “I thought I just had to play this track. You've probably seen him playing jazz at various venues” Zan - Original106FM "Mr Shaw’s muscular occasionally ‘dirty’ and inventive sax work. - Blues In The South Magazine
