Elvis Costello

Series 6

Duration:
1 hour

First broadcast:
Sunday 03 November 2013

Matt Everitt speaks to Elvis Costello, one of the most admired and gifted songwriters in the history of popular music, about the key first musical moments that shaped his life.

He arrived seemingly fully formed with his 1977 debut album My Aim Is True full of passion, anger and poetry - and hasn't stopped moving since.

He's produced albums of sneering post punk, lavish orchestral pop, country and western, r'n'b, easy listening, classical instrumentation, Tin Pan Alley pop and jazz - and the thread that runs through all of his output is his brilliant lyrics and song writing skill.

Not a man who does that many interviews - quite possibly as he doesn't enjoy them, here Elvis talks about the influence of his father on his musical history (he was a trumpeter with The Joe Loss Orchestra in the 50s and 60s) the recording of his breakthrough album My Aim Is True and enlisting legendary jazz trumpet Chet Baker for his classic song Shipbuilding.

He also talks about some of his favourite collaborators which include Paul McCartney, Burt Bacharach and most recently The Roots - which whom he's just released a new album - Wise Up Ghost - which once again sounds like nothing he's ever recorded.

Listening now via this

Usual stories - first word being 'Skin' , looking for' I Got You Under My Skin' and the BBC play a Dinah Washington version , when I'm sure Elvis referred to a Frank Sinatra version.

They're now playing Ross McManus's Patsy Girl - yay!
