Hello,<br><br>I always felt Joe Jackson also was a true original and also partly cynical musical multi-talent just making sounds and songs variing from pop to jazz and "serious". He was nothing like Frank, of course, but who is...?<br><br>Now, what do you think of JJ?<br>

The only Joe Jackson song I ever heard is 'Got the time' as covered by Anthrax.  I assume that's not representative of the majority of his work? It does kick ass though!

Yes, thumbs up for Joe Jackson.  He's a talented guy who's made some great records.  New wave, pop/rock, ska, reggae, jump blues, big band swing, jazz.  He's tried just about everything.  Steppin' Out: The Very Best Of Joe Jackson is a good place to start or if you want one the best pop/rock albums of all-time get his debut, Look Sharp!

Yeah! A sort of a "Stricty Commercial" for JJ ;)<br><br>The reason I started this topic was that I found a news falsh where the reunion of the late-seveties Joe JAckson Band is announced for gigs. Looking forward to see them next summer!<br>

I've always liked the song "stepping out". It's cool. :)

I caught a Joe Jackson love concert on tv and Graham Maby's playing & whole stage presence reminds me so much of Scott's - that punchy plectrumed p-bass pootling
