There's a lightly stepping, cinematic charm to pianist Jones's outstanding compositions here, especially those featuring the Mavron String Quartet.

The catchy opener, "The Metro", could be the score to a stylish French thriller, while "5 to 3 on Friday" suggests 1960s social realism. Saxophonist Lee Goodall sounds world-class, although the out-of-character last number where he gurns on guitar rather spoils an otherwise mellow mood.
