Jay's Selection is the first compilation album released by British funk/acid jazz band Jamiroquai. The album features a selection of tracks chosen and mixed by lead singer Jay Kay. The album was released exclusively in Japan in 1996,[1] and has never been available in the United Kingdom. Although Jay's vocals do not appear on any of the tracks, you can clearly hear that the group have added their usual acid jazz theme to each recording.
