Trading in his New Wave threads for an uptown entertainer's tuxedo, Joe Jackson fully embraced his love for sophisticated pop on 1982's Night and Day. True, his version of pop-rock had always shown more refinement than that of his British punk peers. But Night and Day went a step further, masterfully invoking the era of Porter and Gershwin with wry-yet-romantic lyrics and lush melodies. The result is a musical champagne cocktail, bubbling with high spirits and subtle Latin flavors. Jackson's piano virtuosity provides the album's focus. "Real Men" and "T.V. Age" take a jaundiced look at modern sexual roles and media obsessions. "Breaking Us in Two" matches yearning words to a smoothly-contoured tune. The album's centerpiece, "Steppin' Out," is a breezy celebration of Manhattan nightlife sung by Jackson with elegant urgency. First track to last, Night and Day is a work of real class and genuine inspiration.
