Milestone, 2001, CD
Jazz Ruler Type: Ballads, Blues
O’s Notes: Ian defies stereotypes of British singers displaying a true penchant as a jazz crooner. He’s melodic on the bluesy “Ruby”, maintains true tone, and never misses a beat swinging on “Dearly Beloved”. Lew Soloff (t), Joe Beck (g) and Eric Alexander (s) are among the strong musicians rounding out a strong performance.
