In the course of almost 6 decades in the music business, he showed his prowess in several genres: Jazz (his first love), pop, folk, big band, swing. He often quoted Stan Kenton, Frank Sinatra, and Stan Getz among his biggest musical influences. He released the underground cult album Drugstore in 1970. The album has enjoyed long-lasting popularity among jazz and alternative world music aficionados.

He has composed some of the soundtrack music for Martin Scorsese's movie "Mean Streets". He participated in, and won, several music festivals both as a composer and as a conductor. He had an instrumental role in re-popularizing the "sceneggiata" a Neapolitan folk musical theater very famous at the beginning of the 20th century. Tony Iglio lives - and still works - in Naples, Italy, with his family. Read more on Last.fm.
