Joe Jackson will be at James K. Polk Theater in Nashville, TN
Following three sold out tours over the last year and a half, venerable songwriter Joe Jackson is mounting one more “encore” to his critically acclaimed Fast Forward Tour. The band will once again feature Graham Maby on bass, guitarist Teddy Kumpel (Rickie Lee Jones, Feist), and drummer Doug Yowell (Suzanne Vega, Ari Hest).
The summer tour will find Jackson visiting several cities he hasn’t played in many years and, in some cases, cities where he’s never played. As before, the set list will feature songs from across Jackson’s entire catalogue including a mix of old songs going right back to the beginning, as well as songs from 2015’s Fast Forward, and an unpredictable selection of covers. The band will be rehearsing and adding some songs to the repertoire just for this run.
Originally conceived to be released as a series of EPs, Fast Forward was produced and arranged by Jackson, and features four sets of four songs recorded in four different cities - New York, 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.
Fast Forward combines the beauty and intelligence of his best earlier work with a new quality: warmth, generosity, possibly even contentment – THE NEW YORKER
