We construct special solutions to the rational quantum Knizhnik-Zamolodchikov equation associated with the Lie algebra glN. The main ingredient is a special class of the shifted non-symmetric Jack polynomials. It may be regarded as a shifted version of the singular polynomials studied by Dunkl. We prove that our solutions contain those obtained as a scaling limit of matrix elements of the vertex operators of level one.

Key words: qKZ equation; shifted Jack polynomial; degenerate double affine Hecke algebra.
