Press quotes:

“… jazz can mean many things to many people. But if you’re after the marrow of the music, look no further.” (5-star review - Jazz Journal, 2019) “…followers of contemporary jazz at its best need look no further” (Jazz Views, 2019) “Jones has assembled a formidable quartet” (London Jazz News, 2017) “The theme writing is, as you might expect from a successful film and TV composer, memorable, and the playing has a muscular, rolling intensity that puts me in mind of McCoy Tyner.” (Jazzwise, 2017)
