ellington tribute

Joe Jackson has always been one of my favourite musicians.

Never afraid to experiment and always keen to work in different styles and genres, his latest project due out in 2012 is a tribute to Duke Ellington.

It’ll be interesting to hear the results, especially after his earlier jazz excursions on the ‘Jumpin’ Jive’ album and his¬†original soundtrack for the Francis Ford Coppola film ‘Tucker.’

Joe’s love of jazz is also celebrated on a recent selection entitled ‘Joe’s Choice,’ pulling together some of his favourite Blue Note recordings by Art Blakey and Horace Silver.

Duke Ellington – Mood Indigo

Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – Moanin’
