JOE JACKSON ANNOUNCES THE RELEASE OF LIVE MUSIC ON JUNE 7;
CONFIRMED TO PERFORM WITH THE ROOTS ON JIMMY FALLON JUNE 8;
Razor & Tie is excited to announce the release of Joe Jackson's Live Music on June 7, 2011. The record is a document of the fantastic European tour from 2010. While 2003's Volume 4 and the seven-month tour that followed that brilliant record featured the reunion of the entire original, iconic Joe Jackson Band from the late 70s, the follow-up, 2008's Rain, was made with three of those four members: Joe Jackson (vocals and keyboards), Graham Maby (bass/vocals) and Dave Houghton (drums/vocals). This is the band that appears on Live Music, which is made up of 12 tracks culled from board recordings from a variety of cities. Jackson will perform with The Roots as his band on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on June 8.
Live Music features nine Jackson classics and three covers: The Beatles' "Girl," David Bowie's "Scary Monsters" and Ian Dury's "Inbetweenies." The tracks are heard as they were performed. There aren't any fixes, overdubs or corrections.
Jackson is currently working on a Duke Ellington tribute record that will be recorded in Amsterdam, Berlin and New York. It will be released sometime in early 2012.
