Why See Joe Jackson?
the Fast Forward Tour continues
English singer and pianist Joe Jackson's 2015 album, Fast Forward, was split into four parts, with an equal number of tracks recorded in London, Berlin, Amsterdam and New Orleans. The album also saw him team up with the best local talent for each recording session, including members of the legendary funk band Galactic and jazz stars Bill Frisell and Brian Blade. Now the English singer songwriter unveils a selection of US dates for 2017 as part of his continuing Fast Forward tour.
The album marked yet another adventurous move from a singer whose career is full of them. Emerging into the music world in the late seventies/early eighties, Jackson first hit it big with his track "Is She Really Going Out With Him?", followed up by the classic "Steppin' Out". He then entered into a much more jazz influences phase of his career, culminating in a Duke Ellington tribute album released in 2012.
