The Jacks, originally known as Nightingale, began their career in 1966 as a folk trio.

After jazz drummer Takasuke Kida joined the group they headed into a new musical direction. Vacant World is widely seen as one of the most important Japanese albums. The song 'Vacant World' (or 'Karappo no Sekai' in Japanese) was famously banned from Japanese airwaves due to lyrical content. The Jacks' musical legacy has carried on in Japan despite the fact that their career was quite short, disbanding shortly before the release of their second studio album Super Session (or 'Jacks No Kiseki' in Japanese).
