Since last night was Valentine's Day, I thought it only right to continue with the theme of love with a version of the iconic song "Lover Man (Oh Where Can You Be?)". The song was written in 1941 for Billie Holiday, who had a great hit with it. It was written by Jimmy Davis, Roger Ramirez, and James Sherman. British Jazz singer Ian Shaw first recorded the song for the 1995 album, 'Ghostsongs'. Being an out and proud gay man, Shaw left the pronouns in place, and just sang the song like he should. This live version heard here can be found on 'Live at Ronnie Scott's: The Best of Ian Shaw'. This is IAn Shaw singing "Lover Man (Oh, Where Can You Be?).

I just love it - and can't get enough of just about anything Ian sings. To learn more about Ian Shaw, visit his official website. You can also 'like' him on Facebook, and 'follow' him on Twitter. You can download a copy of 'Ghostsongs' from iTunes or Amazon, or you can download a copy of 'Live at Ronnie Scott's: The Best of Ian Shaw' from iTunes.
