Legendary actor Joe Pesci is in the news lately for his typically powerful performance in the new Martin Scorsese film The Irishman, which hit Netflix on Nov. 27. Pesci, 76, appears on screen in a substantial role in a film for the first time in a while, as the reclusive actor has maintained strong control over his acting schedule for years.
But he’s also in the news for another reason: His new jazz album, Pesci … Still Singing, was released on Nov. 29. It’s Pesci’s third album to date and the first since 1998’s Vincent LaGuardia Gambini Sings Just for You, which was an in-character record from Vinny LaGuardia Gambini, Pesci’s character in My Cousin Vinny.
Still Singing features accompaniment from Adam Levine of Maroon 5, who appears throughout the album with Pesci, making this truly one of the most unique and, frankly, unexpected releases of 2019.
Here’s the track listing for the album.
1. “How About You”
2. “Falling In Love is Wonderful”
3. “I Remember April”
4. “I’ll Be Seeing You”
5. “Round Midnight”
6. ‘If I Should Lose You”
7. “My Cherie Amour” (feat. Adam Levine)
8. ‘In My Solitude”
9. “Folks Who Live On The Hill”
10. “If I Ever Lost You”
11. “The Nearness of You” (feat. Jimmy Scott)
13. “Baby Girl” (feat. Adam Levine)

Kudos to Joe Pesci on this “comeback” in two formats, as The Irishman is his first film role since 2015 and just his third in the past decade, as the 76-year-old has maintained a relatively low profile in recent years. Great to have him back!
