About

From johnpigneguy.co.uk:

[…] Studio-recording work for films, TV, pop, “light”music/jazz/ “big band,” jingles etc. was a major feature right throughout John’s career, the first major project being “The Battle of Britain” (1969). This was followed by countless others including various Pink Panthers and James Bonds, Star Wars, Superman, Batman, Gandhi, Cry Freedom, Billy Elliot, Shakespeare In Love, Moulin Rouge, Gladiator, Harry Potter etc. — and for TV including Jewel in the Crown, Brideshead Revisited, Poirot, The Generation Game with Bruce Forsyth, Yes Minister/Yes Prime Minister, The Two Ronnies, Last of the Summer Wine and many others.

John also recorded/performed/toured with Frank Sinatra and the Buddy Rich Band, Sammy Davis Jnr and Liza Minnelli, Paul McCartney (see accompanying photo), Eric Clapton, Barbra Streisand, Tony Bennett, a jazz album with Stephane Grappelli and Yehudi Menuhin, Joni Mitchell, Robbie Williams, Madonna, Grace Jones, Bono and U2, Geri Halliwell and many others.

In 1984, John decided to concentrate exclusively on the wide variety of work available at that time as a session musician, and was the only London horn-player to do so. His last major project was the James Bond film of September 2002 “Die Another Day” at George Martin’s Air Studios in Hampstead. […]

As member of the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble, he played on the re-recording of the song “Wanderlust” for the “Give My Regards To Broad Street” film and soundtrack. It’s unclear if he also participated to the initial recording in 1981 for the “Tug Of War” album.
