Night and Day is the fifth studio album by British pianist and singer-songwriter Joe Jackson, originally released in June 1982 via A&M Records.

Joe Jackson went to New York looking for new inspirations and sounds, and found his greatest commercial and critical success with Night and Day, an album redolent of the glitz and glamour of the city. These superbly crafted and arranged pop songs are inspired by the grandeur of Cole Porter and George Gershwin, and confidently infused with elements of jazz, swing and salsa. A genre-jumping crossover hit that virtually no one who heard the edgy power-pop of Jackson’s first 1979 efforts- Look Sharp! and I’m the Man- could ever claim to have seen coming. Perhaps the fearless Jackson’s finest hour in the studio.

The track Real Men and A Slow Song referred obliquely to New York City's early 1980s gay culture. Steppin' Out earned Grammy nominations for Record of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Performance, Male. It was a Top 10 in both the UK and the U.S. (UK No. 6, U.S. #6). Breaking Us in Two reached #18 in the U.S. and #59 in the UK. Real Men also became a top 10 hit in Australia.

The album reached the Top 5 in both the UK and U.S., Jackson's only studio album to do so. It sold over one million copies, earning platinum disc status.

Notes about this vinyl pressing from Intervention Records:

Night and Day is mastered 100% AAA analog and sourced from the best analog tape currently available, a beautifully preserved and gorgeous sounding ½” “safety copy” of the original stereo master. When mastering this LP we listened to an original A&M US pressing, which we believe to be the best sounding version previously available in spite of numerous reissues (we had them all on hand), for comparison and level matching. The tapes sounded simply phenomenal, with full bass, lots of midrange and treble detail and a very lively and punchy dynamic. IR's release maintains the richness and punch in the bass without exagerrating the low end, and since we didn't push the treble the glorious midrange is fully revealed, maintaining the tape's beautiful top-end shimmer without tipping the balance toward bightness. One of those rare recodings where the sonics are a match for the performance!
