Joe Pesci and other famous actors who are also musicians
The 'Goodfellas' actor just released a jazz single
Actors often work long hours, and immerse themselves completely in their roles. Many times, this process takes all their energy and there’s not much more an actor can do, other than perform to the best of their ability. While this is the reality for many actors, particularly in-demand Hollywood stars, some of these talented people have found another way of getting their creative juices flowing: through music.
Many noted film and television stars have harmonized their on-screen careers with musicality, resulting in varying degrees of success. From talented singers to proficient instrument players, many actors and actresses prove that talent can be transposed into other art forms.
Joe Pesci is the latest. The legendary actor just released a jazz single, 'Baby Girl,' featuring Maroon 5's Adam Levine and trumpeter Arturo Sandoval. The track is off of his new jazz album, 'Still Singing.' What you might also not know is that this is actually Pesci's third album.
