Joe Jackson is celebrating 40 years of a multi-faceted career, launched in 1979 with the album Look Sharp, a striking new wave work with influences from punk and reggae. At Montreux for the third time, this British singer will revisit five of his most popular albums, each one representing a decade. On the set list: Look Sharp, the legendary Night And Day and its hit “Steppin’ Out” (1982), Laughter and Lust (1991), Rain (2008), and the most recent, Fool. Released at the start of the year, this sumptuous pop-jazz record is one of his most accessible since the late 1980s. Trained at the Royal Academy of Music, Jackson had regularly distanced himself from pop, intervening with the same verve in classical music (Symphony No. 1, 1999), film soundtracks (Francis Ford Coppola’s Tucker, 1988), and jazz (The Duke, 2012).
