||Rock Dust Light Star CD (2010)
Derrick McKenzie songs Eclectic British jazz-funk-pop outfit Jamiroquai's seventh studio album was recorded in Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, and Thailand, resulting in a cosmopolitan, highly danceable set of 12 new tracks that dutifully blend the disco and electronic leanings of 2005's Dynamite with the organic, roots-based soul of the band's 1993 debut.
2010 release, the seventh album from British Jazz Funk pioneers Jamiroquai. Fronted by the charismatic Jay Kay, this is the band's first album in five years, following Dynamite with the kind of catchiness that made Jamiroquai a household name. Recorded between Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire, and Thailand, Rock Dust Light Star features the single 'Blue Skies', a Take That-esque uplifting pop song - a departure from tracks such as 'Space Cowboy'. This record shows the group's talent remains as strong in 2010 as it was in 1994.
