Mammoth Live Presents
Fast Forward Tour
The ever-restless songwriter Joe Jackson traveled the world to record Fast Forward, his first collection of original songs in seven years, released in October 2015 via Work Song/Caroline. Originally conceived to be released as a series of EPs, the album was produced and arranged by Jackson, and it features four sets of four songs recorded in four different cities -- New York, New Orleans, Berlin and Amsterdam -- each with a different set of first-call supporting musicians. The results rank among the richest and most rewarding music of his storied career.
These career-spanning shows will feature Jackson "as my own opening act," playing a short solo/piano set before bringing out a full band which will include Graham Maby on bass, guitarist Teddy Kumpel (Rickie Lee Jones, Feist), and drummer Doug Yowell (Suzanne Vega, Ari Hest).
Joe Jackson's last release, 2012's Duke, was an ambitious, horn-free tribute to "fellow music pioneer" (NPR) Duke Ellington, which Rolling Stone hailed as "movingly subtle."
