Excerpt:

Pianist Harry Mayronne captures that old silent-movie style right away, improvising a score that has a cinematic scope to it. As the mood moves him, it has dramatic moments, followed by jazzy interludes. He links it all to the film, for example, with a tick-tock theme mirroring the movie’s use of clocks, but also responds to and/or leads his fellow artists.
