A Funk Odyssey is the fifth studio album by English funk band Jamiroquai. The album was released on 3 September 2001 in the United Kingdom by Sony Soho Square and 11 September 2001 by Epic Records in the United States.
The test pressing of the album also featured three interludes. The first features band frontman Kay in an electronically manipulated monologue, asking himself why he would want to \"shut down the funk assembly unit.\" The second interlude is a beatbox track, which was later sampled in the single \"Feels Just Like It Should\", while the third features Strauss's \"The Blue Danube\" being faded in slowly at a low volume. A case of synchronicity occurs when the test pressing is played to Stanley Kubrick's film adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke's 2001: A Space Odyssey.
After the jarring reception of 1999's Synkronized, Jamiroquai constructed A Funk Odyssey, something more polished and slick inside the band's own brand of funky disco-rock. Jason Kay and keyboardist/songwriter Toby Smith perfected a maturation that was left keyed in Travelling Without Moving but left open-ended on Synkronized for a wide scope of musical delight. A Funk Odyssey taps into various illustrious grooves of the Latin world, classic rock, and mainstream club culture, and Jamiroquai is tight and eager to make everyone shake their groove thing in their own light. The first single, \"Little L,\" beams with Kajagoogoo-like synths while warping into a funk-driven hue of orchestral whirlpools, but Jamiroquai allows the band's extroverted and unattached personality to shine on the worldbeat-tinged \"Corner of the Earth.\" Kay strips aside all disco humor and grandeur for something personally inviting, something that's heartfelt, too. A Funk Odyssey sparks classic enthusiasm, and it feels good. Dance music is not just a design, it's something far more tangible, and Jamiroquai surely captures a fierce desire to make it more emotional on the band's own level.
All versions of the album (other than the Japanese release) also include as a hidden track \"So Good To Feel Real\", a funky jam recorded just before the album had to be delivered to the record company. The track on the album, which fades out after a couple of minutes was recorded in a single take and was never completed.
In the credits for A Funk Odyssey, Jay writes \"As always, I thank you, the fans worldwide who come to the shows and show such huge support that I am so grateful for (the buffalo man tattoos are fantastic) because without you there would be no Jamiroquai. To you I send all my best vibes and love and I hope in my heart you dig it. This is our funk odyssey.\"
Fifth studio album by the English funk band, featuring the singles 'Little L', 'You Give Me Something', 'Love Foolosophy' and 'Corner of the Earth', all of which reached the top 40 in the UK Singles Chart.
Combining elements of funk, disco and electronica, the release of the album represented the peak of international commercial success for Jamiroquai, and in the ensuing world tour the group became a household name in many countries. 153554b96e
