Joe Jackson stopped by Late Night with Jimmy Fallon to perform a new arrangement of his 1982 hit "Steppin' Out" with the show's house band the Roots. Roots drummer ?uestlove swapped out the steady electronic pulse of the original recording for a busier beat with aggressive snare hits and cymbal crashes. Jackson adds some flourishes on his piano, stretching out for a brief solo sequence that nicely shows off his jazzy chops.
