Win Tickets: Joe Jackson at the Strathmore
Though Joe Jackson’s upcoming album, The Duke, is a tribute to jazz composer and big-band dynamo Duke Ellington, Jackson interpreted the songs in his own way. “Ellington didn’t consider his own arrangements to be sacred…So I think my approach is in the spirit of the man himself.” Performing songs from the album, in addition to his own classic hits, Jackson (with some help from revered jazz violinist Regina Carter) will fill The Music Center at Strathmore with his signature playful, piano-heavy bliss.
