Preview: Joe Stilgoe: Songs on Film. Celebrating 100 years of Hollywood. Sage Gateshead, May 14 8pm. Tickets £20.

This show, specially devised for the EFG London Jazz Festival, sees pianist, singer and songwriter Joe Stilgoe pay tribute to 100 years of Hollywood cinema through the music that aided and abetted its legend. From ‘An American in Paris’ to ‘The Apartment’, from ‘Casablanca’ to ‘Catch Me If You Can’, Joe and his remarkable band perform songs written for, and inspired by, some of the greatest films over the last century, focusing on those that pushed the popularity of jazz and the standards of Gershwin, Cole Porter and Ivor Novello.
Joe is a singer, pianist, composer and entertainer touring constantly with his band and as a solo act. In 2011 he made his solo debut at the Edinburgh Fringe where his show One Hour! was a sell-out and garnered much critical acclaim. Last summer he released his second album ‘We Look To The Stars’ which immediately went straight to the top of the jazz charts while pulling in rave reviews from the national press.
