Artist Biography:
b. 20 March 1937, Benoit, Mississippi, USA. Shaw grew up in neighbouring Greenville and learned to play clarinet and trombone before choosing the saxophone. He played with local jump-blues bands (including one led by Ike Turner) and sat in with Muddy Waters in 1957. Waters hired him immediately and he moved to Chicago. Once there he associated with Howlin’ Wolf and Magic Sam, and recorded with both. He also fronted his own band on vocals and saxophone. Eddie also ran the 1815 Club in Chicago, wrote and arranged songs for other artists, learned to play blues harmonica, and has recorded as band leader for Mac Simmons’ label, for Alligator Records Living Chicago Blues project, and for the Isabel and Rooster companies. His son Eddie ‘Vaan’ Shaw is a member of his band, the Wolf Gang.
