From Amazon.com

Though they receive equal billing, Ian Shaw and Cedar Walton are not equal partners here in the way that Cassandra Wilson and Jacky Terrasson were on Rendezvous. There are no instrumentals without Shaw, no Walton originals; the listing seems more a nod to the veteran jazzman's seniority and talent. Other than an extended solo on "Last Night When We Were Young," Walton functions here as an accompanist (along with saxophonist Iain Bellamy and bassist David Williams). That said, Shaw is an interesting vocalist. One easily hears his influences--Mel Torme, Tony Bennett, and in a swinging bass and vocal arrangement of "I Thought About You," Sarah Vaughan. Shaw's influences, though, are filtered through a gauze of British soul. It is especially evident in blues tunes like "Standing in the Dark" and "No One Ever Tells You," in which Shaw occasionally evokes the young Steve Winwood back when the latter sounded frighteningly like Ray Charles. But more often Shaw's vocal timbre evokes the power and passion of fellow Welshman Tom Jones. This is by no means a criticism--Jones has a terrific voice and tons of soul. Shaw, meanwhile, exhibits none of Jones's Vegas mannerisms or dubious choices of material. Still, with all his jazz-singer intentions and credentials, In a New York Minute contains enough examples of modern R&B vocal histrionics to make one wonder whether Ian Shaw is a soul singer performing jazz or an interesting new hybrid. Time will tell. --Michael Ross

Ian 's magic 9 Jun. 2000
By Roberto Ballati - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
As usual, this enormously underrated singer delivered a great album. There's magic in Mr. Shaw voice, a combination of soul, blues, gospel roots mixed with an extraordinary jazz sensibility that gives me the chill: pick just any of his cd, you'll be surprised how a brit white singer can be so undoubtely, deeply black in his musical approach. A pity there's no trace on line of one of his first efforts, the beautiful acoustic "Lazy blue eyes", where he sings with Catol Grimes: his rendition of "In a sentimental mood" is gorgeous and that it's not an easy song to perform, particularly by a male singer. In this latest cd with the great Cedar Walton on piano Ian steals the show with an intense "Standing in the dark", a sublime "Alfie", a vibrant "No one ever tells you" and a NancyWilsonish "I thought about you". On my opinion, the masterpiece here is the tender "Wouldn't it be lovely", to listen to while sitting in your car , waiting on a queue in a rainy day.... Keep on doing it Ian, you know what's singing is about!

Brilliant In Every Respect 10 Dec. 2002
By Tom Cunniff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Bravo to whoever decided to pair Ian Shaw and Cedar Walton.
Everything on this CD -- from the choice of songs, the players, the interpretations, the overall vibe -- is purely magical.
Singers like Ian Shaw represent the future of jazz if we can only allow ourselves to embrace it.
He respects tradition, but doesn't pander. He sings standards as they should be sung -- as vibrant new material, not shopworn standbys. He's also able to hear the jazz in Joni Mitchell, Burt Bacharach, and Bill Withers.
In a live setting, he's a great performer. I caught him one rainy night in Greenwich Village at Fez. I'd never heard of him before, and only went because the New York Times suggested it.
He was completely captivating with only a pianist as his accompaniment.
Pick up this CD, and pick up the rest of Ian's work -- especially Soho Stories. You'll fall in love in a New York Minute.

Jazz prowess wrapped in an English accent 3 Oct. 2006
By Ennis Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For listeners enamored of classic jazz collaborations between pianists and vocalists--Cassandra Wilson/Jacky Terrasson's Rendezvous and Janis Siegel/Fred Hersch's Shortstories come to mind--here's a worthy addition to the canon, courtesy of the UK singer Ian Shaw and the American virtuoso Cedar Walton. Be warned though: the album's a bit of a cheat. Shaw and Walton are the frontmen, but they aren't the only musicians on this 1998 effort; the sparse, laid-back arrangements are occasionally sweetened by David William's bass and the agile saxophonist Iain Ballamy.

Mr. Walton is a sensitive accompanist (the pairing pays off especially in the dynamic opener and the honky-tonkish Standing in the Dark) but this is Mr. Shaw's show. Listening to the scat figures in the title cut, it's tempting to compare him to Mel Torme (both have that same fuzzy tenor sound) but Shaw is very much his own vocalist--one only has to absorb the stream-of-conscious syncopations of Joni Mitchell's Furry Sings the Blues or the soul-shouted precision of Grandma's Hands to hear uncommon versatility wrapped in musical ideas at once primal and modern.

The CD's two standouts are songs so familiar they'd risk becoming glaring folly in lesser hands. But Shaw makes Wouldn't It Be Loverly (from the musical My Fair Lady) a wistful, almost Dickensian plea of a man who's come to recognize, and covet the simpler solaces of life. Equally heartbreaking is his take on Burt Bachrach's Alfie, a song from which Shaw wrings every yearning drop of self-questioning. These renditions reveal a vocalist blessed with elegant restraint, and an actor unafraid to lay his emotions bare. In a New York Minute is everything you'd hope for in a jazz album, but Mr. Shaw's gifts transcend genre labels. However he's pegged one thing's clear--this is a singer for all seasons.
Never Fails to Impress 1 Sept. 2011
By Peter Baklava - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
When Welsh-born Ian Shaw belts out a blues number, such as "Standing in the Dark', or "No One Ever Tells You" from this cd, he can remind you of his fellow countryman, pop singer Tom Jones. Shaw shares some of the same vocal inflections and a dash of the brashness, although in comparison to the volcanic Mr. Jones, the vocal wattage is much mellower and more nimble. You could say that Shaw is a smooth capuccino to Tom Jones' triple expresso, although both singers are expert at delivering soulful angst when needed.

"In a New York Minute" blends Shaw's youthful willingness to experiment with the infallibly tasteful piano mastery of Cedar Walton, and it's a great combination. Walton never takes center stage (this is clearly Shaw's date), and his graceful playing is always exactly right.

Iain Ballamy (Loose Tubes, Bill Bruford's Earthworks) contributes some marvelous saxophone work as well, combining deep warmth in the lower registry with a sharp menthol freshness in the upper range which will remind you of Paul Desmond, or Gigi Gryce.

Another thing that makes this a special set is the superb choice of material. Shaw does a wonderfully understated version of "Wouldn't It Be Loverly?", a really sensitive "Last Night When We Were Young", and as he consoles "Alfie", you'll be hard-pressed not to sing along. Then there are some choices that are more unusual, such as Bill Withers' "Grandma's Hands", and Joni Mitchell's "Furry Sings the Blues". There isn't a track here that you'll ever want to skip.

All in all, this fortuitous combination of youthful verve and veteran wisdom should tickle your ears quite nicely. In a world where Jamie Cullum is flourishing nicely, Ian Shaw is several storeys above, and way too good to be missed.

BUY THIS NOW! 15 July 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This CD has got it all - breathtaking musicianship, heart-stopping risk, tenderness of tone. That Ian Shaw is not more famous as a great jazz/soul/blues vocalist is a crime.
