He was GREAT, and had a terrific big band...don't miss him next time he is in town.
The Ellington arrangements were pure Joe Jackson. He played his heart out, including old favorites of his own (plus some new tunes) for 2 hours, no intermission.

Joe Jackson brought together an amazing collection of musicians. They seamless went from Duke Ellington to world music to Jackson's biggest hits. This is not a rock band. They go far beyond the genre. Jackson is not a showman. He appears humble...continued

Excellent performers, excellent material, horrible sound! Way too loud to the point of physical pain, terrible hum all the time, and way over-boosted bass, making it impossible to hear melodies and singing, the worst concert audio I have ever...continued

Joe Jackson and his band were terrific, performing more than half of the selections from his latest project, The Duke, along with enough favorites to satisfy longtime fans. The Masonic Auditorium is a great venue and the bargain seats were...continued

Intimate setting which was perfect for this show! Jackson was quite entertaining, the music was fabulous as he did some old favorites and his own renditions of many Duke Ellington favorites as well. We were very glad we went!

Thanks, Goldstar, for the $10.50 Joe Jackson tickets at the Masonic Center. He and his band were absolutely incredible! They were tight, and so gracious and generous with the audience--a very memorable concert.

The show was excellent. Joe & his big band were tight. I've seen him before and he is always evolving. He and the band seemed totally into it. They played his new stuff, big band, and his older material, some with new arrangements. I left the show...continued
