Biography

Jamiroquai

After a career lasting an era-defying two decades, 30 million albums sales and over 20 hit singles; a shelf-full of awards, including five MTV gongs, an Ivor Novello and a Grammy to name a few, it’s fair to say that Jay Kay, the charismatic quick stepping Londoner professionally known as Jamiroquai, is one of the UK’s greatest musical exports of the last 20 ...

Product Description

Amazon.co.uk

With a voice like Stevie Wonder, a production sound that recalls the string-laden, slinky-bass disco of Studio 54 and a penchant for funky dance moves and outlandish hats, Jamiroquai's Jay Kay has successfully managed to straddle the underground and mainstream for the best part of 15 years. High Times brings together 19 of his band's hits to date, ranging from early 90s acid jazz classics "When You Gonna Learn", "Too Young To Die" and "Blow Your Mind", to later successes such as "Canned Heat", "Cosmic Girl", "Virtual Insanity" and on to recent songs from 2005 album Dynamite, such as "Feels Just Like It Should" and "7 Days In Sunny June". There are also two new tracks - the current single "Runaway" and the edgier "Radio", both of which continue the Jamiroquai tradition of mildly euphoric dancefloor disco-soul. Despite sticking to a formula of sorts over the years, the songs on this collection compliment each other well and form an impressive overview of one of the UK’s most distinctive bands.--Danny McKenna

5.0 out of 5 stars Exquisite funky sounds!.... 21 Dec 2006
Format:Audio CD
Jamiroquai have always been one of my favourite bands right from the early Acid Jazz days up to the more commercial dance/pop tunes of today. Ok, so it always seems to be about Jay Kay, flash cars and paparazzi bust ups nowadays (or so the media likes to portray), but once upon a time, there was a cool band that was original, talented and wrote wicked songs.

This 'greatest hits' album takes you on a fantastic journey through the lifetime of Jamiroquai, and makes you sit back and realise how incredible the band have been.

The early Acid Jazz days with tracks such as 'Too young to die' have always been my favourites, but the list of singles show how versatile this band have been at adapting their sound in the ever changing, industry of music.

Bands like Jamiroquai and The Brand New Heavies (who also have a new album out), have been around for a while now and are already influencing new, up and coming bands and artists such as 'Chichino', which goes to show that they have definately made a big impact in the music industry over the last 14 years.

We need more music like this in what seems to be an indie-guitar dominated world at the moment. More upbeat, danceable funky songs to strutt our stuff to please!!

4.0 out of 5 stars A time capsule 4 July 2008
By andy
Format:Audio CD
It is clear that jamiroquai are something of an unusual band. I remember seeing them for the first time on TV in around 1993, (I think it was the show, The Word) performing Too Young To Die, and immediately clocked the retro 70's jazz funk style and as i was and still am a fan of such music, immediately became a fan and went out and bought the single.
The fender rhodes keys, the Stevie Wonder-esque voice, the funky bass and horns,and the sci-fi imagery and lyrics, all came to make a great sound and package, and whats more the first proper British jazz funk since Light of The World, and a great antidote to the Brit pop or electronicky stuff around.
Their first album was a constant visitor to my Cd player.
What was more surprising that they became so popular, as they were so unusual.
OK, the Acid Jazz movement was in full swing, but they transcended that and outlasted it.
This Cd shows the development of the band and their sound, from the early raw jazz funk tracks through the disco-funk of A Funk Odyssey to the later stuff, it is clear that the sound has changed over that time, yet still sounds like Jamiroquai.
What is also clear is that the earlier stuff is far superior to their latest offerings.
They produced five top notch albums all with a clear progression of style, and then their last one; and that was a huge disappointment. The edginess had gone from the music, to be replaced by a bland self satisfied sound playing lip service to their earlier work, trapped in some kind of disco-pap hell.
One of the aspects of Jamiroquai's music that made it so different; the wonderful didgeridoo inspired instrumentals had disappeared a while ago, and their loss was keenly felt.
The stuff from Dynamite all sounds a bit samey, as do the new offerings here.

5.0 out of 5 stars TOP OF TREE FOR SO MANY YEARS!!! 14 Jan 2009
Format:Audio CD
I had forgotten how many songs Jamiroquai had written over a massive 15 years in the trade. This collection of songs has it all and is brillantly put together from start to finish. He is a top draw song writer and this just proves how good he was and still is. Everybody will know a number of songs from this greatest hits collection and it really is a delight to listen to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jamiroquai - High Times: Singles 1992-2006 1 Nov 2006
By N. Wilson VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
It isn't until you see the track listing for this album that you realise what a long running and continuously successful career Jamiroquai have had. From their debut single; "When you gunna learn" which peaked at #52 in the charts to their newest realease "Runaway" this album has all the highs and lows of their career.

Jamiroquai, lead by singer songwriter Jay-K, were set up after he failed to get a part in the 90's band "Brand New Heavies" and after their fourteen successful years in the spotlight, Jamiroquai have had a total of 20 band members and have recorded with the likes of Jools Holland, Kool and the Gang and Beverley Knight to name a few.

For anyone who [very sadly] don't know who or what Jamiroquai are, their sound can be described as Acid-Jazz Funk Pop Dance with exceptional vocal parts from Jay-K as well as brilliant guitar riffs, excellent strings, fabulous rhythmns and funky bass lines, and their sound is an all together catchy and loveable one at that.

And whilst Jamiroquai have had some fabulous hit singles, you may be shocked to know that alot of their tracks peaked outside of the top ten, and alot also outside of the top twenty. And in their 14 year career Jamiroquai have only managed to score one number one record in the UK singles charts. Dispite this their albums have all been consistantly successful, all peaking within the top three, many of which went to number one!

"High Times" is collection of Jamiroquai's most successful works to date, featuring their huge songs; "Canned Heat", "Cosmic Girl" and their number one single (which featured in the Godzilla movie) "Deeper Underground".
