No one was pepared for the cinematic Night and Day , The Album is split into two distinct sides
The Night suggests the frantic bustle of clubland , The Day side is more reserved with tender ballads
'Night And Day' is a tribute to the Tin Pan Alley style songwriting of Cole Porter and George Gershwin, both early heroes of the English singer.
With more emphasis on keys & percussion than his earlier work, 'Night And Day' became a hybrid of Latin rhythms and jazzy horns & pianos, with stylish synths & splashy pop that perfectly reflects the New York of the early '80s.
Riding on the single "Steppin' Out", for which he was nominated for a Grammy, the album crept to the number 4 position on the American and number 3 in the British charts, and eventually went gold.
"Joe Jackson would change all the time into different configurations. On his first album, he registered as a punk rocker; the next time around, he'd be working with girl violinists. On Night and Day, he really stretched out, and wrote great songs. The main hit, 'Steppin' Out,' was just beautiful.
Some of his punk outings met with moderate sales, but he was well known as such a great musician, so when he came up with something you could put your arms around like 'Steppin' Out,' everyone jumped."
