Toronto pianist/guitarist David Ian scored real success in 2011 with his Vintage Christmas album. He now turns his talented hand to another holiday on Valentine's Day, a tasteful collection of Songbook standards with a suitably romantic feel. Classics chosen include "My Funny Valentine", "Summertime", and "Night And Day". Guest vocalists (including Russ Taff) and a string section add real warmth. Ian was formerly in Grammy-nominated rock band Superchick, but is now clearly at ease in jazz. Pair this album with roses and chocolates and you could fare well on the 14th!
