Joe Jackson

Liane Hansen speaks with singer/songwriter Joe Jackson, who performs a selection from his new cd, Night and Day II (Sony Classical SK 89261) for us in NPR's Studio 4A. Jackson made a splash in 1979 with his seminal new wave album, Look Sharp! and soon branched out into jump blues, reggae, jazz and classical forms. His latest recording picks up where the 1982 album Night and Day left off, full of musical portraits of New York City eccentrics.
