inverse laplace transforms

Hello to all.

It has been years since I last made a post:-)!

A colleague of mine gave me the following

InverseLaplaceTransform[1/(1 + (a*I*s)^(-b)), s, t]

Mathematica 8 returns the transform unevaluated.

The values of the parameters are:
0<b<1
0<a<10

I am puzzled with the behavior of the integrand.
For a=2 and b=3/10 e.g. there is a branch cut along the imaginary axis.
I cannot figure out the positions of poles.

Any ideas of evaluating symbolically (or numerically) this inverse transform?

Thank you very much in advance for your response.
