Joe Stilgoe - Songs On Film: The Sequel - The Sunday Times


01 August 2016
The Sunday Times
Clive Davis

If you can't catch his show at the Edinburgh Fringe, here's the next best thing. Quick-witted and urbane, the singer-pianist is once again venturing into cinematic territory, his trio cutting a genial path through Cool, from West Side Story, and paying homage to Tarantino on You Never Can Tell. If Stilgoe is too sunny a character to overdose on noir, he brings a cineaste's enthusiasm to the project. And he has no end of fun with Curtis Stigers on the Monsters, Inc ditty If I Didn't Have You.
