Joe Jackson — Fast Forward (October 2nd, 2015) N ********¼

  Joe Jackson — Fast Forward (October 2nd, 2015)Joe Jackson — Fast Forward (October 2nd, 2015) •»   Joe Jackson je jedním z nejunikátnějších muzikantů britské historie. Vycházejíc z punkové revoluce si sofistikovaní hudební gurmáni okamžitě povšimli jeho zručnosti, kombinující syrovou energii, velkou vášeň a nechuť ke stereotypům. Joe Jackson v průběhu své umělecké dráhy zaujal umístění celosvětově 10x TOP 10 svými písněmi, dále — 21x byl oceněn a vysoce umístěn svými alby a v tomto “hlavním segmentu” bylo tím nejúspěšnějším “Night and Day” (#4 US, #3 UK). V nové době ještě #1 US Contemporary Jazz Albums chart albem z roku 2012 “The Duke”. Teď je na stole nové občerstvení: “Fast Forward”. Je jubilejní dvacáté studiové a třicáté dohromady s live. Jaká bude oslava? Album je naprosto fantastické jako zamlada. Už u druhé “If It Wasn’t for You” jsem v highu. Album je dlouhé přes 73 minut. Teprve čtvrtá “King of the City” je pomalejší, komornější i nástrojově. Všemu je nadřazen Jacksonův medový zpěv.

Description:
SESSION 1: NEW YORK
÷•»   Jackson has called New York home for many years.  He recorded these tracks with Bill Frisell on guitar, Brian Blade on drums, his longtime bassist Graham Maby, and jazz violin star Regina Carter. Along with three originals including the album’s title track, these sessions also feature a cover of Television’s “See No Evil.”
SESSION 2: AMSTERDAM
÷•»   Distinguished by the most diverse instrumentation of the four sessions, Jackson is joined on these songs by frequent collaborators Stefan Kruger and Stefan Schmid from the band Zuco 103, the Concertgebouw orchestra, and the project’s only guest vocalist, 14–year–old Mitchell Sink (from the cast of the Broadway musical “Matilda”).
SESSION 3: BERLIN
÷•»   Berlin is Jackson’s second home, and he recorded here with two expatriate American musicians: acoustic bass master Greg Cohen (Tom Waits, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan) and Tindersticks drummer Earl Harvin. These sessions produced the album’s second cover, Jackson’s modern English take on the 1930s German ‘Kabarett’ song “Good Bye Jonny.”
SESSION 4: NEW ORLEANS
÷•»   Jackson traveled to one of his favorite cities, New Orleans, to record with an all–local cast including three members of the funk band Galactic — drummer Stanton Moore, bassist Robert Mercurio, and guitarist Jeff Raines — and a horn section led by saxophonist Donald Harrison.
÷•»   Joe Jackson’s new album Fast Forward marks his first release of original material since 2008’s Rain. The record features four sets of four songs that were recorded in four different cities, among them New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, and New Orleans. The first single, “A Little Smile,” was attributed to Jackson’s Amsterdam sessions.                                      © Joe Jackson by Stuart Mentiply
Joe say about the making of “Fast Forward”:
÷•»   Fast Forward has more words than anything else I’ve written. It just kept growing and growing. I imagined having a time machine, and hitting ‘fast forward’ until I’m far enough in the future to look back at the present and make sense of it. We’ve got the past all figured out (or think we do) — and we can imagine the future as anything we want.So it’s only the present that’s baffling and maddening.
÷•»   And I think we’re living in a confused and anxious time. The commentary out there is extremely divided, either ‘we’re living in a golden age’ or ‘we’re all screwed’.
÷•»   I actually started with the chord changes, which constantly cycle through different keys until they end up where they started, only to start again. That triggered thoughts about how things are always changing, yet in some ways stay the same, or go backwards. The lyrics are full of ironies and contradictions. The musicians: Bill Frisell guitar, Brian Blade drums, Graham Maby bass, and the gorgeous violin is Regina Carter. In my mind she represents the Moon looking down on the Earth, both saddened and amused by us humans. And it’s just our attention that fades out at the end; the song goes on forever…
