Ian is stellar musician, organized human and overall really really nice guy. I came to him last minute with needs for a trombone line and he delivered two incredibly clean files - and even included some additional harmony. His mics match his wonderful playing which is filled with style, soul and energy. Ian is the real deal and I highly recommend using his for your next track which needs trombone!
