Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons Release Expansive Double Album “Happy Book”


This sounds like a band that’s been together 17 years and has evolved along the way,” says bandleader Jerry Joseph of Happy Book, the new album from his group [lastfm]Jerry Joseph & The Jackmormons[/lastfm]. An expansive and ambitious double-album release, Happy Book sets sail the moment the listener hits “play” with a strong title track that seems designed to draw the listener in close, prepping us for what’s to come. Guitar-driven and delivering a strong sense of purpose, “Happy Book” kicks off the set and frames the way this album should be listened to – LOUD.
