You can set your watch by it: 1995, 2006, 2017… every eleven years Jason (Jay) Kay comes to North Sea Jazz. It's equally certain that every time he performs it's with the super-tight, irrepressibly swinging band Jamiroquai. It's no wonder that his first European live show in seven years sold out in 30 seconds. Fans know what they'll be getting: a carefree, summery succession of hits. Hits that have made Jamiroquai one of Britain's most successful bands, selling over 26 million albums. Their eighth studio album Automaton went on sale at the end of March and, according to Jay, it centers around the theme of the rise of artificial intelligence and technology. The 47-year-old singer believes we sometimes forget the simple beauty of pure human contact. Like in the past, the danceable album contains a lot of disco rhythms and bold synths, but the concept is contemporary. Enjoy Jamiroquai's show at this year's North Sea Jazz – according to calculations they won't be here again until 2028!
