The description of David Ian's Valentine's Day album is spot on with easy but interesting melodies. Ian is true to the jazz roots yet doesn't let that allow the album to become predictable. You will be able to relax, read, dine and more while Ian provides the soundtrack for a lovely evening.
You can hear clips on iTunes. He previous album was recently reviewed on NPR.
Don't let the album title fool you, this one is great for any time of year, and I can't think of anyone who wouldn't enjoy this gesture of thoughtfulness as Valentine's Day approaches. It's not mushy, it's not overly romantic. This album is soulful, contemplative and subtle.
Thank you to Grace Ian (David's wife) for sending me a copy to review. I wish you both much success in your ventures!
