Jones is the solo album of Trevor Jones who is joined by the duo Miracle Mile. He has already garnered rave reviews for his previous work and going by the ten songs on here he is going to do it again. The overall feel is one of quiet reflection – nothing to fast paced – with a strong, often moving lyric. A song like 'Homeward' deserves to be a hit single and if it doesn't make BBC Radio 2's airplay list (or for that matter any song on here) then something is wrong with the world. It is one of those tunes that reaches out to anyone, as does 'Hopeland'. In fact the whole album is well worth indulging in and Trevor Jones has a wonderfully smooth voice that suits the musical mood perfectly. It is not so quiet as to merge into the background as the lyrics and voice keep you listening.
It isn't out until March next year but you can get an early release copy here from the man himself.
