The Stage's David Hutchinson sits down with Joe Stilgoe to discuss his upcoming performance in High Society at the Old Vic.
Stilgoe's 'New Songs' Listed In Telegraph Best Of List
Joe Stilgoe's new album, New Songs For Old Souls, has been included in The Telegraph's '15 best jazz albums of 2015' list alongside albums by Kenny Wheeler, Jack DeJohnette and The Ben Cox Band.
The list is regularly updated with picks from jazz critic Ivan Hewett and culture editor Martin Chilton.
Martin Chilton reviewed New Songs For Old Souls stating:
'Music should be fun and the new album from pianist and singer/songwriter Joe Stilgoe is just that. His own compositions (comprising 10 of the 12 songs) are quirky and interesting and there's a nostalgic charm to big band numbers such as Nobody Cares Like Me and Pocket Song. Tom Farmer (bass), Ben Reynolds (drums) and Billy Adamson (guitar) add fine support and there is a sweet duet with Liane Carroll on a cover of Brian Wilson's I Just Wasn't Made For These Times.'
