Rest in Peace, Toby Smith

Smith is the co-founder of Jamiroquai and was the keyboard player for the band for more than 10 years. I dare to say that he is the one-third of Jamiroquai's music with the other two are the frontman Jason Kay and bass player Stuart Zender. Smith co-wrote almost all songs on Jamiroquai's first five albums before resigning in 2002. As my favourite keyboard player from the 90s, his notable co-writings and performances including the songs Mr. Moon, Space Cowboy, Alright, Deeper Underground, Little L, and fans favourite Virtual Insanity.
His performance is featured on my Spotify playlist, Songs Featuring Rhodes Piano.

Rest in peace, Toby Smith.
