WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Joe Stilgoe is a serious musician having fun. His parents, both professional musicians, encouraged him to practise and it's now paying off as he draws comparisons with singer/pianists such as Nat King Cole, Harry Connick Jr, Buddy Greco and Jamie Cullum. His singing, piano playing and sense of humour have made him a regular at the UK's top jazz clubs including Ronnie Scotts, where he regularly plays with his dynamic trio.
Songs on Film pays tribute to much-loved movies, as self-confessed film buff Joe raids his own collection and adds his own original and stylish orchestrations to some of the most memorable moments in cinematic history. From Hollywood's golden age, to the classic films of the 80's, to the work of Tarantino, Tati, Paramount and Pixar, Joe and his remarkable band perform songs written for and inspired by some of the greatest films of the last century. With virtuosic musicianship, breathtaking theatricality and wit, Songs on Film pays tribute to all your favourite movies.
