MUSIC NEWS - The ever-restless songwriter Joe Jackson traveled the world to record 'Fast Forward,' his first collection of original songs in seven years, that's set for October 2, 2015 release on Work Song/Caroline. Originally conceived to be released as a series of EPs, the album was produced and arranged by Jackson, and features four sets of four songs recorded in four different cities - New York City, 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.
NEW YORK Jackson has called New York home for many years. He recorded these tracks with Bill Frisell on guitar, Brian Blade on drums, his longtime bassist Graham Maby, and jazz violin star Regina Carter. Along with three originals including the album's title track, these sessions feature a scorching take on a New York classic, Television's "See No Evil."
