Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Critics and audiences agree, Joe Stilgoe is a gem among classical artists. He has an extremely successful live career, and his recordings have gained him international attention. Joe is a regular at the world's best jazz festivals, and is always in demand from jazz greats like John Wilson and Claire Martin. His virtuosity, theatricality, and witty audience interaction make him a favorite. This release is Joe's second tribute to the silver screen, and takes listeners on a tour of Hollywood with themes from movies like Pulp Fiction, Monsters Inc, Whiplash, and Footloose. As an additional treat, he has included a special 1980s melody. "Songs at the piano don't get much sharper than this." (The Observer) "... a powerful improviser with an instinctive gift for melody." (The Times) "A jazz pianist and songwriter of considerable talent." (The Guardian)
