Audio CD, Original recording reissued, Original recording remastered, January 12, 1999
Jackson and his band do an authentic interpretation of the music while having fun with it.
This album is great not only for those who want a fun introduction to swing, but also for anyone who might enjoy a loving and energetic tribute to the genre.
Many of the popular 1990s swing bands performed the songs that Joe Jackson covered, often sounding very close to Jackson's versions.
Fluency ..maturity and full of surprises.another outing on the mark and
Off to the races..urging the listener to keep up.

Great music. Makes a person want to get up and dance. I am a old Rock n Roller but this music gets my toes a tappin!Published on February 28, 2013 by RJC
This is an album you can track through -- or in this case -- play through. Jumpin' Jive puts the zing in swing on the music. A must have for my Jackson collection.Published on January 29, 2013 by C. Carmichael
