The Lowlist: Jamiroquai’s Emergency on Planet Earth was a solid platinum gem for all bass players

by GuitarDomain

Jamiroquai’s debut album Emergency on Planet Earth is a solid platinum gem for all bass players, emanating from a time when grunge was starting to wane and acid jazz was becoming a major musical entity. With its first single, When You Gonna Learn, released on Acid Jazz in 1992, its sound captured the moment and led to bandleader and singer Jason ‘Jay Kay’ Cheetham signing a deal with Sony before he even had his own fully-fledged band. 

It wasn’t long before that was rectified – and with bass wonder Stuart Zender in the chair, live shows and the subsequent single, Too Young To Die, almost guaranteed the LP the UK number one spot on its release in August 1993.
