David Ian Valentine's Day - New CD-released 01/28/14!

Would you like a "little jazz" for your listening pleasure on Valentine's Day?  At times I get assorted mail in and this CD, "David Ian Valentine's Day" came in last week for me to review. Here is his website,


I really enjoyed this CD, its smooth, sassy, tranquil and its jazz with a vintage feel to it!
I popped in my CD while cooking dinner and I found each song delightful and soothing! It brought back memories of when I was kid and the family would gather in the living room. We would listen for hours different albums of jazz on the stereo on a Saturday night! 

 While listening to this CD, I found myself pouring a glass of wine, looking for a comfy chair, laying my head back, closing my eyes and gently taking in a relaxing jazzy night of vintage jazz music! It  definitely helped me to relax, escape and forget about everyday stresses for awhile.

David is the pianist and arranger, of these beautiful jazz CD's and he has recently released his third studio album, Valentine’s Day! There are 11 tracks to listen to, each selection has it's own magical spell. I have to agree with a statement on his website, which ASSOCIATED PRESS states is “seamlessly melding the some traditional compositions with the perfect hint of lounge-meets-jazz phrasing.”  "It goes on to say the selections on this album reflect David Ian’s own journey in discovering jazz, with many of the tracks among the first standards he came to love."

I would definitely recommend this CD! I am sure the selections are sure to please anyone's listening pleasure. My Funny Valentine was a favorite, Kevin Max is the vocalist, but the 
"Gospel vocal legend, *Russ Taff, and Ian’s fragile piano expressions create a solemn moment in the bonus track Sweet By and By." It was soul searching.

I have to give a shout out to his sweet wife, Grace, who sent me the CD to review. Thank you for choosing Frugal Southern Mom to add to your list for reviews.  It was a great early Valentine's Day present, which I enjoyed immensely.

You can find David Ian's CD's on Amazon, Itunes and

Valentine's Day

"Super Wubble is up to four times stronger and more tear-resistant than the original Wubble Bubble Ball. Made with a new super stretchy material called Xpandium, it’s super smashable and super squashable. Bounce it, throw it, kick it, smoosh it, smash it, even sit on it!"

My family took the Super Wubble Bubble Ball on this past weekend! We opened the box and found the instructions were simple to read and follow. It came with an air machine to blow it up, one patch in case of a puncture and a Vaseline like jelly to rub on the bubble to make blowing it up easier.

Once we blew it up,(and yes it will blow up to 3 feet), the fun started! It was bounced on each other, thrown up in the air and placed on head's to fit like a hat! It with stood being bounced against the house and kicked across the front pasture,(we live in the country with acreage) by the time we gave it all we had, it looked like a very dirty, brown dusty huge inflated 3 foot pink ball! Yes it withstood all the fu…
