Joe Stilgoe - I Like This One - The Sunday Times
If his father, Richard, cornered the market in very English quirkiness, this young singer-pianist has the potential to compete with the Michael Bublés and Jamie Cullums of this world. Stilgoe adds a sprinkling of cultured original numbers to the golden-age standards; his funky take on The Lady Is a Tramp is one of the high points, along with the crisply executed title tune. He makes sure the piano-playing isn't pushed into the margins, revealing himself to be a powerful improviser with an instinctive gift for melody. The title of the bluesy Mr Spiggott isn't the only reason that some listeners may find themselves recalling Dudley Moore at his youthful best.
