Another very droll comedy from Alan Plater who continues to display his love for the jazz scene after the wonderful "Beiderbecke" series. Elliott Gould is perfectly cast as the lugubrious old jazz pianist, and is superbly supported by Geraldine James as his long-suffering minder and Alun Armstrong as a laconic joiner-cum-jazz freak. It's also a good early role for a pre-"Trainspotting" Ewan McGregor too. A joy from start to finish.
