Love That Album - Episode 7 - Joe Jackson Night & Day

For this episode of Love That Album, I’m working without the safety net of a co-host to bounce thoughts off. I discuss Joe Jackson’s album of 1982 “Night & Day”. Recorded only 3 years after his punky-pop debut “Look Sharp”, Jackson’s musical thoughts are miles away from his early style. More focussed on jazz, samba and piano ballads than punk, pop and ska, Night & Day is a modern musical masterpiece. I go through my thoughts on the album, career highlights, and his essay advocating smokers’ rights!!!! No ordinary civil rights advocacy for our Joe.
