Joe Jackson is out on the road and he has never sounded better. I caught him last night at the Pabst Theater in Milwaukee and it was a dazzling show filled with hits, old and new. His current backing band, comprised of ever present bassist Graham Maby, guitarist Teddy Kumpel, and drummer Doug Yowell, is the best he has ever had.
Joe has always been an impeccable performer, achieving near perfection in musical arrangements, in particular with vocals. His whole band can sing very, very well and all of this was evidence in his nearly two hour set. My faves were "Nineteen Forever" and "Fool."
If you get a chance to catch him when he is near your town, do it! He is playing all over the country in some very interesting places
