it all comes down to individual taste though.

The bass line doesnt always make a great song.

I have heard the post Zender era argument a lot and lets be honest, its not that different in the style of bass, the whole songs are different, more mellow, more mainstream and more of the moment in the life of the writer.


Zender is a great bass player, but any session jazz bassist could replicate it easily, with each new member comes a new style.

yeah axactly.

well jquai with Zender, was a different sound altogether.... and my favourite album of all time is ROTSC... but i still love the rest of their music! It doesnt mean that post-Zender Jquai is bad!

Besides, if the Jquai sound had not changed, people would still be dumping on them, saying that they hadn't progressed!

yep, but Zender was not only involved on bass... he was part of the band and co-wrote most songs with Jay and Toby... they were a team!

that's why they recorded TWM and won so many awards and album sellings...

THAT IS NOT gonna happen with the actual band.. and you all know that!!
Dynamite??? ahah you're really kidding me... they couldnt sell more than 3 million albums... sad...

Brother, are you insane!!!This article has nothing to do with the Post-zender Jamiroquai.People talk,talk,talk but Jamiroquai still Jams,funks and blows minds.There's only one Jamiroquai, Stu is a brilliant past but now they are awsome.Sorry,I know that you hate the new flavours of Jamiroquai but thats the real funk.

did Dynamite really only sell 3 million? :shock:

Toby Smith and Stu Zender helped to make great music... But look at the actual song ROTSC - JK wrote that all by himself and thats a brilliant song... though i admit it is sad that the sound is different without smith and zender.

@ Jameerica - I'm also anticipating the new sounds... and i know i'm not gonna be disappointed!

havent found roisin though - I don't download any music on this laptop cos its too slow!!! :cry: :cry: :cry:

i think it's mostly the marketing that's driving those numbers Ed.

Funk Odyssey isn't that like they're best sold album? that was definately post-Zender


i know dynamite, funk odyssey, got zero marketing here in the U.S.

imagine the numbers if there was marketing involved here..during AFO era :shock:

good point ivy... regardless of whether or not Zender left the band... its still ridiculous to badmouth other people like that. Just look at all the support Jquai receives at concerts,in sales,even this forum...

- I dont like their sound anymore
- They should bring back old band members

Ok friends tell me how can we bring Stu?!!!Impossible
Jamiroquai still got it, and especially Jay is in great shape. People, they still funk. I understand, we all miss the old sound but that is not a reason to call Jamiroquai rubbish band.For me in general I love Jamiroquai. Do you still love them?!!! :D :D :D

agree with you again
and by the way, that's mean i like all jamiroquai eras...except afo...that album dont grow on me...is hard to listen :shock:
but dynamite and sinkronized are good(better dynamite)
afo have great sales but im sure many of you have divided points of view...but that's another thread :lol: :lol:
and like i say many times here
i dont give a f**k about the sales, that's care for sony, not for me
the band must win money but the money cant be the ''why'' they do music...there's so many pop persons who wins alot of money doing crap...jamiroquai must win the money they deserve, they must sell what they deserve, they must win the awards they deserve, dont forget now the ''music bussiness'' can make you win only because they want...so, many awards are only a trick between the award people and the music companys...i dont give a f**k about the money on the sales...if i was musician my first think to care will be be the best i can be and i will say all i want and i dont give a f**k if i have only 1000 fans, they will be real fans, when the bands become mainstream many fans go away in the next albums because is not the same sh*t they want...so who cares if we are only 1000, 10.000 or 1000.000?if we really think we like the band we are in the right place, alot of sales now mean you have great marketing campaings, even when u music can be sh*t :evil:
money is need for live, but live for money... :twisted:
people do the most horrible things only to have money...look what george ''war''bush is doing, all for the money, he kill millions of innocent people in this wars only because the money he can win with the oil and other companies..., so the money must die :twisted: and the money dont must move our world :evil: we will be really free when the money was not the first thing in our lives and the spiritual and the arts become the real important things on life, and burocracy and many sh*t like that die, and give us place for be a society when the love really can rule and the power dont care anymore...only how big is your soul, how good you're :D
jay, dont forget, make more music and start to sell all the material things that u dont need anymore, when u can find a girl and a life with her and have sons and all that things u will have not so many material things but u will have spiritual things, so im sure u know that, that must be the important things...sony used you as a they use many musicians that dont know the bussiness...and i cant believe i live in a world where the ''music'' is a bussiness...wtf?music is art, music is a way to express yourself, to be you, how could a monopoly choose-direct something like the music?
that explain all the crap that is around...only because they have sells they sell crap...many very good bands-even in my country-are good but they dont have so many publicity, but you can find them anyways and they never loose their soul,so i must say i know many underground music very good, and in many music styles...but ifi talk about why i like to listen many different styles this post will be longer as a road, so i must stop
musicians, dont sell to the big companys, use internet, use another ways, here many good bands start with small shows and cassetes or lps, so win fans in that way...the money only is fucking our world :evil:

if u wanna read again this will be in my space soon...with a good title obviusly :wink:
i can sounds rude but i need to share what i think with all 8)

hahaah i know the old guys are not gonna be back...
i know they will never sound like they did (that's a bit impossible i think)
even if they put a DJ, Brass and a Didgeridoo they will never sound like they did...

but well... that's your band guys and you love it... you just have to accept someone elses critics... i don't like it, you do... so... enjoy your band, the same way i enjoy the Zender one...

another thing i can say is, that the actual band has done some great stuff... what can i say? Shoot the Moon? Do it like we used to do? Time Won't Wait? Canned Heat live at the Jazz Cafe?, yeh, great songs... but not enough for me, cos they had the world on their hands back in 1997... 8 million albums? why that happened?

and why its not gonna happen actually? you all know it...
i really like to come here, and make my critics and see how people take it! and we haven't started a fight because of that!
i'm proud of this forum! that is becoming better everyday!
sometimes so much rules makes a forum sad and not funny...
keep on groovin' people!

What do you think Jay's new work will sound like... maybe this should be a new thread
