Event detailsThe ever-restless British-born, NYC/Berlin-based singer/songwriter Joe Jackson makes his highly anticipated debut at the Jazz Festival. With a string of 19 studio albums and multiple Grammy nominations, Jackson rocketed to stardom with songs including  "Is She Really Going Out With Him?" , "Steppin' Out" and "It's Different for Girls."  Over a long career Joe has traversed territory ranging from cabaret and film scores to classical music, pop and jump blues. His latest release, Fast Forward, is his first collection of original songs in seven years and features guest musicians including Bill Frisell, Stefan Kruger (Zuco 103), Earl Harvin, and Stanton Moore. His career-spanning Festival show will feature Jackson "as my opening act," playing a short solo piano set before bringing out a full band which will include Graham Maby bass, Teddy Kumpel (Rickie Lee Jones, Feist) guitar, and Doug Yowell (Suzanne Vega, Ari Hest) drums...
