Muze PNote This is the album where Jackson starts showing off his compositional and instrumental chops. By 1982 he had moved to New York, where he developed a great love of Latin music. Perhaps spurred by his 1981 jump blues outing JUMPIN' JIVE, Jackson again stepped away from his rock & roll past, this time with some outstanding original tunes. NIGHT AND DAY merges Latin sounds with pop, jazz and classic Gershwinesque melodic elegance. It contains the most mature and instantly satisfying compositions of Jackson's career.
Muze PNote The Latin percussion of Sue Hadjopoulos and Jackson' own salsa-tinge piano provide continuity throughout the album. In what was a revolutionary move for a pop-rock artist at the time, Jackson jettisoned his guitarist in favor of a second keyboardist, and the piano, organ and synthesizer textures provide much of the meat for the arrangements. Alternately propulsive and reflective, NIGHT AND DAY reflects the concerns of an Englishman in New York City in the early '80s, but the album's biggest hit "Steppin' Out" is a graceful, synth-flavored love ballad that's as timeless as great pop songs get.

Artist Overview

In the late '70s, Joe Jackson was part of England's holy trinity of angry young men, which also included Elvis Costello and Graham Parker. However, Jackson quickly branched out from new wave. Proving to be an incredibly eclectic artist, he's subsequently recorded everything from jump blues (predating the '90s swing revival by a good 15 years) to orchestral compositions.
