Joe Jackson will play two nights at London’s Cadogan Hall, on Thursday 8th and Saturday 10th November 2012, as part of his European tour to promote his new album ‘The Duke’.
The show consists of music from the album, which is Joe’s unique interpretations of Duke Ellington classics, as well as original songs taken from Joe’s own 30-year writing and recording career, from Look Sharp to Rain.
The six-piece ensemble, called The Bigger Band to set it apart from the small bands that Joe has toured with over the last several years, features acclaimed jazz violinist Regina Carter, who made an important contribution to the album.
Two former Joe Jackson band members will also be returning: percussionist Sue Hadjopoulos and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Allison Cornell. The remaining members are Jesse Murphy (bass, vocals, and tuba), Adam Rogers (guitar) and Nate Smith (drums).
