The Duke

Joe Jackson      

The Duke


The Duke finds the iconoclastic singer/composer/arranger/keyboardist and five-time Grammy nominee Joe Jackson interpreting a series of Ellington classics over the course of ten tracks, interspersing melodic and rhythmic elements of various compositions in a manner that’s consistent with Ellington’s own freewheeling approach.

The Duke features guest performances/duets with Iggy Pop, Sharon Jones, Iranian singer Sussan Deyhim, Lilian Vieira (from the Brazilian/Dutch collective Zuco 103), violinist Regina Carter, bassist Christian McBride, Steve Vai, drummer Ahmir ‘?uestlove’ Thompson (The Roots) and Jackson band members Vinnie Zummo (guitar) and Sue Hadjopoulos (percussion)
