I share your mystification. Jamiroquai, from what I've heard, are more
or less as original as MC Hammer. damn - my first post to list and it's
flame bait. <shrug>

actually, I'm a little confused about this list in general. when I first
heard "Cantaloop" I thought it was acid jazz -- however, a closer
listening and it seemed far too repetitive for that label. is it just me
or does acid jazz imply a colescing of the live, responsive and "deep"
jazz approach with the structures and intentions of dance music (e.g.,
making you shake your ass on the d floor)? what I always thought, anyway.
