Courtesy of the Stonecutter Archives is this interview with Joe Jackson on Vin Scelsa's "Idiot's Delight," promoting his "Night Music" album. This was Jackson's sophomore foray into classical music. The album was panned as self-indulgent and ponderous by critics but of course has its staunch defenders. You won't get any of that music here since it's all officially released and is omitted here -- this is purely the interview portion distilled from a 90-minute visit.

If you're a fan of "Night Music" this will be an indispensible listen and companion audio to that album, as the interview also digs a bit into Jackson's frame of mind a month after the album's release.
