Album Notes
In 2002 Cap'n James Cook needed an outlet for all the old-time jazz and folk songs he'd learned over the years, so he rustled up some friends willing to take on this oddball assignment, thus forming Trashcan Joe. But along the way, they found themselves writing their own tunes, which have become the real strength of their recordings and live performances. This trend culminates in 2006's Real Life, Trashcan Joe's third CD, but the first composed entirely of original material.
A typical live show consists of these original tunes, classic standards from early jazz and blues, movie theme songs, and swing, all played with drive and finesse. Trashcan Joe are a steadily working live band, and have played venues such as Pickathon (twice), Oregon Public Broadcasting's LiveWire, the Northwest Folklife Festival in Seattle , and were the house band at the 2006 Candidates Gone Wild at the Roseland Theater.
Trashcan Joe also has soundtrack work on the old resumé. In 2004 they scored the music for the Aurora award winning OPB special Zig-Zag which explores the stories of several Portland area commuters. Later that year came the feature motion picture Lipstick and Dynamite, which chronicles the history of women's wrestling and includes TJoe music as part of the soundtrack.
Trashcan Joe has a well rounded and exciting sound, and can rise to any occasion. Come see us at!
