About Jumpin' Jive

Joe Jackson's Jumpin' Jive is the fourth studio album by Joe Jackson. Released in 1981, it is a collection of covers of classic 1940s swing and jump blues songs originally performed by musicians such as Louis Jordan and Cab Calloway, the latter of whom's song "Jumpin' Jive" was the eponym for this album. The album and single were credited to Joe Jackson's Jumpin' Jive. Jackson's foray through jump blues anticipated the so-called "retro-swing revival" (Squirrel Nut Zippers, Big Bad Voodoo Daddy, Brian Setzer Orchestra) by a full fifteen years. A remastered edition was released in late 1998.
