We find a biorthogonal expansion of the Cayley transform of the non-symmetric Jack functions in terms of the non-symmetric Jack polynomials, the coefficients being Meixner-Pollaczek type polynomials. This is done by computing the Cherednik-Opdam transform of the non-symmetric Jack polynomials multiplied by the exponential function.

Key words: non-symmetric Jack polynomials and functions; biorthogonal expansion; Laplace transform; Cherednik-Opdam transform.
