Any examination of The Black Sorrows inevitably comes down to one person. Joe Camilleri (singer, songwriter, saxophonist, producer and the brains behind The Black Sorrows) is one of the most genuinely talented figures in Australian music. This year, with 45 albums under his belt, Joe Camilleri will celebrate 50 years in the music business and is showing no signs of slowing down. In the award-winning documentary of his life in music, Joe Camilleri: Australiaʼs Maltese Falcon, Jane Clifton described Joe as “indefatigable”. It is his seemingly tireless drive to continually perform and record quality music that has rewarded him legendary status and well-deserved longevity in the music industry.
