After a three-album salvo of edgy new wave, Joe Jackson took the first of many musical left turns by unexpectedly dipping into the jazzy jump blues of artists like Louis Jordan and Cab Calloway. This bold move presaged the U.S. swing revival by a decade and a half, but Jackson pulled it off with aplomb, charting higher than one might have expected in the era of shiny synth-pop. A three-man horn section hammers out hard-swinging riffs on mostly uptempo tunes like the Calloway-penned title track, Jordan's "Five Guys Named Moe," and the Glenn Miller hit "Tuxedo Junction." Jackson sounds at home in this brassy, bluesy mode, leaning into the tunes with a feeling of both fervor and fun.
