7: Joe Jackson - Night and Day (1982)
Release Date: 11/23/2017
Have you ever felt a page of your life turn, moving from one chapter to another? It’s a common experience that can be tumultuous but also pretty exciting, too. During a time of transition for Rob, it was Joe Jackson’s 1982 album Night and Day that provided the soundtrack. It was what we term an "experimental album" that provided a means of opening new musical vistas for him, from the world of top 40 hits and new wave anthems to the world of jazz and after-hours Latin rhythms and back again. This is our focus for episode 7, as the Deeper Cuts Trio proceed to steppin’ out into these themes of transitions, new musical possibilities, undercut expectations, and wicked piano breaks. Step along with them!
