In thirty-plus years as a bandleader, Vince Giordano has become the authority on recreating the sounds of 1920s and ’30s jazz and popular music. “I just love the energy of the early jazz,” says Giordano. “I wanted to recapture some of that.” Early Girodano appearances included working with Leon Redbone and on The Prairie Home Companion; as well as Vince’s lending his talents to Francis Ford Coppola’s film, The Cotton Club. These led Vince to working with Dick Hyman’s Orchestra in half a dozen Woody Allen soundtracks, then as a bass player in Sean Penn’s band in Woody’s Sweet and Lowdown. Vince and band were featured in Gus Van Sant’s film, Finding Forrester; in Martin Scorsese’s The Aviator; in Robert DeNiro’s film, The Good Shepherd; and in Sam Mendes’ Revolutionary Road. Most recently, they have won acclaim for their roles in HBO’s Boardwalk Empire. Also a big-band historian and collector, Giordano has more than 30,000 scores in his collection. Vince Giordano and the Nighthawks are renowned on the New York scene for their commitment to preserving and authentically presenting 1920s jazz and popular music.
