"A very unique bass player, a true professional...a very big gold star from me, you must add this album too your collection". Gary Spence, DJ Solarradio

"This CD should not be overlooked by anyone...from the first cut to the last, Ian shows us by taking us on an enthralling and sensual musical journey, and for that... Ian deserves wider recognition. A wonderful CD". Ronny Jordan, Guitarist

Ian is a bassist/songwriter/producer originally from Toronto now residing in the Los Angeles area.

Learning from the past. Looking to the future.
There was a time, many years ago, when grown-up people listened to urban music. In those days a record like this would have been huge in the clubs and would have also got high up the national pop charts. Maybe I'm being cynical, but I fear this album is just too classy for the crossover market nowadays. However, Ian Martin is so talented, and this album is so very, very good, that I am sure it will be hallowed as a classic by both the aging soul crowd and, hopefully, discerning youth. One thing is for certain, this is just the sort of stuff we love over here in the U.K. The man is already highly respected here. We may be, a bit, old fashioned - but then, what's the option?

I'm loving every track. I remember the first time I heard "Let me give you more" Ian(smile). This is a wonderful follow up to One. Very easy to listen to. Ian is a poet and a gifted musician. Don't sit on the fence, add this to your collection now.

This is by far one of Ian's best works. The composition, the musicianship... all
This is one of the most heartfelt, warm and insightful cd's I've found on CD Baby. Of my 4000 cd collection, it's remained in my top 5 since purchased. I have been a fan of Ian's for years and he has really out done himself in The Way. I highly recommend this cd to any novice or professional.

Excellent and long awaited second effort
This was a surprise and a lovely one at that. A five year wait has been worth it. This CD is more in the groove and contains some great steppers as well as three fantastic ballads. Jill Zedah, Sy Smith, Gavin Christopher, Tim Owens and others add magic to this album of soulful and funky tunes. These are tunes to chill out to during the last, dying days of summer. Highly recommended are You Are, So In Love, Brother, Its Your Night, Knockdown Side and the awesome Movin' On! Please visit www.soulexpress.net for this and more reviews of CDs that are available from CD Baby!
