Description

Along with Elvis Costello and Graham Parker, Joe Jackson made some of the best guitar driven New Wave songs. Later, he moved away from rock and toward jazz. His most recent album, Duke, pays homage to Duke Ellington, except, when Jackson reimagines 15 classic Ellington numbers, he does so in a largely unjazz way, texturing the songs with guitars, keyboards and electronics, and jumping around among styles, from world beat, soul and ragtime to Latin music, and a little bit of jazz. His touring group, the bigger band, features violinist Regina Carter (who appears on much of Duke). He will be playing a lot of the material from Duke, as well as a few old classics. With luck, Happy Loving Couples, makes the cut.
