Dial M for Midnight is the debut album from Jim Hayes alter-ego, Jonny Midnight. Released in 2011, the album sets the scene for a new soloist in town. Particular points of interest is the stunning display of dexterity in The Green Hornet, the sumptuous sounds in Clair de Lune and the swanky sounds in Feeling Good and title track, Dial M for Midnight.
With contributions from Alan Morrison, Peter Meechan, James McFadyen, Lucy Pankhurst and Simon Kerwin (among others), you know this is a disc full of diverse composing and arranging talent; the perfect material to showcase Jim Hayes silky cornet sound, sublime musicality and virtuosic pyrotechnics! Listen out for the semi-quavers in the latter half of Blue Mars - impressive stuff!
