Just bought this after a long eight months of waiting. Ian's singing is amazing. I cannot stop playing his version of Skylark. And I Get Along Without You Very Well. I defy anyone to hear this without Crying. The band and production is just superb, obviously a true labour of love.
Standout tracks are the above and a great version of Obsession with ace guitar work from David Preston. Peter Ind!!!!! How did that happen. We couldn't get a ticket for the London dates as they were sold out but we will be going to Swanage festival for sure. HIGHLY recommended.

Steve Lloyd.

Okay, he's not Mr Buble but there are those (me included) who would say that's a good thing. I saw Ian Shaw in Cafe Rio (for non-Glasgegians it's a small cafe, decor and furnishings little changed from the 50s/60s, which is now a great wee local pub and music venue) as part of this year's Glasgo wINternational Jazz Festival. What a voice, what a pianist and what a great choice of songs - if you're looking for someone who churns out predictable versions of the Great American Songbook - it's not Ian Shaw. If you've not heard him before - try it.

Absolutely brilliant. One of the greatest jazz singers in the world. He is even better live if that is possible. Totally recommended

If you already know Ian Shaw you won't be surprised that this album is a technically excellent delivery of Ian Shaw's voice with some stellar musicians like Peter Ind providing a bass part worth paying attention to and Gene Calderazzo possibly under used on kit, allowing for a couple of lovely double bass/vocal duets.

For those of you who don't know Ian Shaw, prepare to be impressed by a jazz musician with an irritatingly large range who writes complicated vocal rhythms and pulls them off seemingly effortlessly with some great use of portamento. For a good example of this try the clip of "The Lady's in love with you" and marvel at the design of Peter Ind's walking bass score which is simple in its rhythm, so as to not step on Ian's toes, but complex in its melody.

Also noteworthy is David Preston's efforts on guitar which are very well tailored to the mood of each piece he plays in. Preston often inserts little licks which really work to add to complexity the pieces (for example around 3:11 in Lady). Zhenya Strigalev plays some very upbeat sax solos in several tracks (most notably "Get out of Town") and provides superb accompaniment throughout in a duet with trumpeter Miguel Gorodi (who was, impressively, still studying in Guildhall while he recorded the album).

I was a tad disappointed not to hear the piano feature more prominently in the album as it was played very subtly by Phil Ware whose subdued and technical chord building style is very much brought through into the piano pieces in the album.
