PBS News Weekend

Season 10, Episode 89 of 99

In the midst of his 40th anniversary tour, the singer-songwriter reflects on his distinctive and varied career. Musician and composer Joe Jackson launched what he calls his "musical journey" more than four decades ago in the hard-edged coastal town of Portsmouth, England. He was drawn early in life to classical music - he even did a stint at London's prestigious Royal Academy of Music - but his career also took a turn into other genres, including the frenetic rock of his 1979 debut album, "Look Sharp!" On the occasion of his 40th anniversary tour, NewsHour Weekend's Tom Casciato charts the Grammy Award winner's eclectic musical journey through new wave, jump blues, classical music, and more, as Jackson reflects on the highs and lows of a unique career.
