FEATURE: Eddie "Vaan" Shaw
Guitarist and singer Eddie "Vaan" Shaw, Jr., is the son of blues saxophonist EDDIE SHAW. Because his father was a fixture on the Chicago blues scene during the '70s - he was a member of HOWLIN' WOLF'S band and a blues club owner - Shaw met many of the city's greatest blues musicians as a child.

MAGIC SAM and HUBERT SUMLIN taught Shaw the basics of blues guitar. Shaw jammed with Sumlin and other Bluesmen who frequented his father's West Side club, Eddie's Place (aka The 1815 Club), and plays in the house band.
Shaw eventually became a member of his father's band, the Wolf Gang, made up of musicians that had backed Howlin' Wolf in the early and mid-'70s.

Since then, Shaw has begun a solo career, though he also continues to work with his father. His album Morning Rain was released on the Wolf label in 1993.
In the autumn of 1994 "Vaan" made a solo tour to Vienna/Austria and Lahnstein/Germany. In Vienna he played an unplugged studio session, supported by members of the Vienna Blues Band "Hooked on Blues". Later that evening he played different sessions at Vienna's "Jazzland" Club, supported by Chris Sandera on harp and Al Cook on guitar (#13).

You can feel this intimate club atmosphere on this CD. Trough listening this CD you know that "Vaan" learned a lot of the masters - Howling Wolf, his father Eddie Shaw and Magic Sam.
