Post punk, pop, swing, jazz, latin, and classical: in the course of his 40-year career, Joe Jackson has always tried out whatever tickled his fancy. He took it for granted that he would never become a big star for the masses. Joe Jackson is an expert in his field and a master of his art who delights music gourmets. The same is true for Joy Denalane: the daughter of a South African father and a German mother was named the «Queen of German Soul» by MTV, but her musical vision and stylistic diversity are more important to her than chart slots. Good music goes deep.
