Jamiroquai is a British jazz funk and acid jazz band formed in 1992. Jamiroquai were initially the most prominent component in the early-1990s London-based acid jazz movement, alongside groups such as Incognito, the James Taylor Quartet, the Brand New Heavies, Galliano, and Corduroy. Subsequent albums have explored other musical directions such as pop, rock and electronica. Jamiroquai have sold more than 25 million albums worldwide and won a Grammy Award in 1997.
The band name is a portmanteau of Jam session and "iroquai", based on the Iroquois, a Native American tribe. The original band was Jay Kay (vocals), Toby Smith (keyboard), Stuart Zender (bass), Nick Van Gelder (drums), Wallis Buchanan (didgeridoo) and Alec Moran (pipeau). These are the founding members of Jamiroquai and were involved in the writing and production of the first album. The lineup of the band has changed several times, and the longest serving and now core members of the band are lead singer and songwriter Jason "Jay" Kay and drummer Derrick McKenzie (1994). Kay was the impetus behind the formation of Jamiroquai, deciding to form the band after an unsuccessful audition to become the singer of the Brand New Heavies. Despite his self-professed attempts to treat Jamiroquai as a band, Kay has always been at the forefront of how the group is marketed, and has therefore always had the lion's share of media attention, to the point where he is viewed as almost a solo artist.
Emergency on Planet Earth is the debut album of the band Jamiroquai. Released in 1993, the album features strong elements of the mixture of the R&B, and funk genres, but it is notable for being one of the definitive acid-jazz albums. The Return Of The Space Cowboy is the second album by the band Jamiroquai. Released in 1994, it is usually classified under the acid-jazz and funk genre. Travelling Without Moving is the third album by Jamiroquai. Released in 1996, the album features the international hit single "Virtual Insanity". Synkronized is the fourth studio album by Jamiroquai. Released in 1999, the album contains funk, disco, and acid jazz elements. It is also known for being the last Jamiroquai album featuring its more traditional lineup and sound. A Funk Odyssey is the fifth studio album by British acid jazz band Jamiroquai, released on September 3, 2001 in the United Kingdom, and September 11, 2001 in the United States. Dynamite is Jamiroquai's sixth studio album, released in June 2005. Produced by Mike Spencer and Jay Kay, it is perhaps their most diverse work to date, featuring electronic, funk, disco, house and acoustic tracks. Rock Dust Light Star is the seventh studio album from British funk group Jamiroquai. The album was released on November 1, 2010.
