Biography

“I revere the Duke, but I didn’t want to make a reverent album”, Joe Jackson says of The Duke, his new tribute to jazz legend Duke Ellington.

The Duke is indeed an unconventional salute to Ellington, demonstrating the timeless brilliance of his compositions while showcasing Jackson’s skills as arranger, instrumentalist and singer. Though it’s his second ... Read more in Amazon's Joe Jackson Store

Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Three years after the mean-spirited Laughter & Lust proved he'd lost all taste for the pop life, Jackson grows up gracefully by adding lyrics to the wide-screen compositions that have been his strength since a dazzling "After Midnight" turned up on Hal Willner's tribute to Thelonious Monk. Here guest vocalist Taylor Carpenter turns in a strong performance, while "Lullaby" and "The Man Who Wrote Danny Boy" are art songs of invention and beauty. In this context, his four instrumental Nocturnes are breathtaking. Jeff Bateman

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and Lyrical, but not for all tastes May 31, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Music for the dark night of the soul. The kind of thing that makes you want to call the artist and ask, "My God-- are you all right? " Some of this is beautiful, some of it is darkly touching, and every time I hear the first bars of "Flying" ("the older I get, the more stupid I feel") I can't help but laugh. Mortality, age, hope, creation-- this is a cd for grownups, and for people who don't mind music that is impossible to pigeonhole by genre. It's not something that I listen to often, but I still consider it one of the essentials in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Better After Midnight September 16, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
One of the principal reasons I am a Joe Jackson fan is that he seems constantly to recreate himself and to explore new musical vistas, teaching me something along the way about jazz, classical, etc. He does it again on this album, a mood piece if there ever was one: best listened to between midnight and sunrise. The songs are perfectly crafted and rendered and most of them linger in my mind for days.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mesmerizing music for the night April 16, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Night Music haunts me every time I listen to it. Jackson has crafted a masterpiece that needs to be experienced with the lights out. An elegaic mood is created by his songs. Enjoy!!!!

Joe Jackson has a sound that I love, and although this album is a little old (as I write in 2014) it was new to me. There are some wonderful passages and the blending of etudes and regular songs works well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Night Music pleases the Joe Jackson lover in me. January 3, 2014
Format:Audio CD
I am enjoying Night Music very much. The mix between pseudo-classical nocturnes and normal Joe Jackson rockers works well. The nocturnes were the highlight for me, with the rock songs being a little uneven. "The Man Who Wrote Danny Boy" is an instant JJ classic to me, I really like it.
