“I revere the Duke, but I didn’t want to make a reverent album”, Joe Jackson says of The Duke, his new tribute to jazz legend Duke Ellington.

The Duke is indeed an unconventional salute to Ellington, demonstrating the timeless brilliance of his compositions while showcasing Jackson’s skills as arranger, instrumentalist and singer. Though it’s his second ... Read more in Amazon's Joe Jackson Store

5.0 out of 5 stars A MUSICAL COLOSSUS 24 Sep 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
With the exception of Nick Drake, no-one else's music has meant quite as much to me as this man's, and no other songwriter has ever matched his lyrical excellence, not even Bob Dylan. Like all great writers Joe Jackson avoids cliches with the same ardent sense of purpose that most people avoid walking in the fast lane of motorways, and he has an unteachable knack of finding unexpected ways of saying the most mundane things.

Now and then
I can wake and in the mirror
Demons turn to friends
Through the pain
I can dig a little deeper
Under the skin of the world

(From Sea of Secrets)

Joe made some great albums in the years leading up to this; things like 1982's Night and Day and 1989's Blaze of Glory, but Night Music remains his most accomplished work. In the aftermath of this I feel he lost his way a bit, returning to form in 2000 with Night and Day II, and I must admit I was totally blown away by 2008's Rain, (second only to this). If songsmiths trade in love, heartache, despair, and anger, Joe's best stuff is born of apathy. The previous album to this, 1991's Laughter and Lust was recorded in a heightened state of self doubt, and by the time this was released three years later the mood had practically become the primary characteristic of his music, resulting in a melancholy masterpiece of unpresedented emotional intensity.

Track two, Flying, is a candid account of the inner struggle that was driving his creative facualty at that time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soothing and very professional 18 Aug 2004
Format:Audio CD
I received "Night Music" as a gift, and warmed to it immediately. Not only is it a far cry from the Joe Jackson of the 1980s, it is extremely polished musically. The obvious theme is that of a frustrated composer who is not sure how to acheive immortality in his music (this is clearly illustrated in "The man who wrote Danny Boy") and the whole album sounds as though the music was written during sleepless nights. The beauty of the nocturnes interweaved with Joe's vocal tracks go to make up a very satisfying album. Incidentally, it is also an excellent cure for insomnia as the music is very soothing to the point of being hypnotic. On many occasions I've put it on after dark and it has lulled me to sleep before reaching the end. I still listen to it, both during day and night, but it's more appreciable during the night. Every instrument is played with 100% professionalism and Joe's vocals are second to none. Buy it first, then listen - you won't be disappointed!

Night music leaves behind the 3 minute pop tune Joe Jackson had mastered and is the clearest sign to date that he has come of age. With it's blend of cultered songs and sophisticated instrumentals it is the logical bridge between different for girls and the new Symphony No 1..it's hard to find money better spent

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a Conventional Joe Jackson Album 12 Aug 2014
Format:Audio CD
You might gather from the title that this is not a typical Joe Jackson album. Guitar, bass, and drums this is not - but it is still a very enjoyable album.

Four of the tracks are classical-sounding instrumentals (Nocturne numbers 1 - 4) while the others are conventional songs without the instruments you would expect from a modern musician. The highest point for me is Only The Future, a good bouncy song. The Man Who Wrote Danny Boy is another very enjoyable song which tells the story of a composer who sells his soul to write a tune that will outlast him. Returning to the nocturnes, I find numbers 1 and 2 to be merely ok, but 3 and 4 are quite enjoyable. Nocturne number 3 reminds me at times of Heart of Ice on Joe's Body and Soul album.

If you've only previously heard Joe's more conventional music you would be well advised to listen to the extracts of this album before buying in case it's not for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Haunting and Lyrical, but not for all tastes 31 May 2000
By Peter A. Greene - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Music for the dark night of the soul. The kind of thing that makes you want to call the artist and ask, "My God-- are you all right? " Some of this is beautiful, some of it is darkly touching, and every time I hear the first bars of "Flying" ("the older I get, the more stupid I feel") I can't help but laugh. Mortality, age, hope, creation-- this is a cd for grownups, and for people who don't mind music that is impossible to pigeonhole by genre. It's not something that I listen to often, but I still consider it one of the essentials in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Nothing Better After Midnight 16 Sep 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
One of the principal reasons I am a Joe Jackson fan is that he seems constantly to recreate himself and to explore new musical vistas, teaching me something along the way about jazz, classical, etc. He does it again on this album, a mood piece if there ever was one: best listened to between midnight and sunrise. The songs are perfectly crafted and rendered and most of them linger in my mind for days.
4.0 out of 5 stars I love this one... 15 Feb 2006
By Gregory Sandoval - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've enjoyed Joe Jackson's music for years and have followed along through the myriad of style changes and maturing of his music. It's a shame he gets lumped in with "those new wave guys" when really he bears little resemblance to the groups of the late 70's early 80's who stayed in those niches. I wish this album - along with Heaven & Hell, his diverse song cycle on the seven deadly sins - were linked into his full "pop" catalog instead of in the classical section where, frankly, the music won't find many new ears amongst the wider audience and precious few adventurous ears amongst the classical audience willing to check it out. Do yourself a favor and give it a listen!
5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely stunning 24 Sep 2009
By William Bridges - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
While browsing through a used tape and CD store, I stumbled across Night Music. Prior to it, my only real exposure to Joe Jackson was Night and Day. To say Night Music is a little different is an understatement. It is at once haunting, majestic, dark, sad, and exhilarating, but definitely not the pop- or jazz-infused work that most people know Jackson for. Do yourself a favor and find this CD.
4.0 out of 5 stars Night music a little uneven but overall very enjoyable. 6 May 2014
By David G. Leonard - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Joe Jackson has a sound that I love, and although this album is a little old (as I write in 2014) it was new to me. There are some wonderful passages and the blending of etudes and regular songs works well.
