Hi-Res
What does World music sound like when filtered through Jacob Collier’s harmonic kaleidoscope? His prismatic vision – piling arrangements on top of each like a glass pyramid – has already earned him a Grammy in 2017, for You and I, from his debut album. Then, Djesse came along, like a tornado of styles, a jazz-world fusion where the London-based multi-instrumentalist extended his conceptual and technical dominion to even vaster musical landscapes. So vast, that apparently it’s only the first in a series of 4. If any proof was still needed that Collier is a musical genius in the highest sense, Djesse Vol. 2 is in the pudding. The scope is still extremely wide, thanks to Jacob’s ability to fit any sort of instrument into a song: bag pipes, slap bass and acoustic guitars are all a part of the opening track Sky Above. But that same scope is also widened through different features: Pino Palladino and Lianne La Havas on the romantic soul-trance of Feel, Steve Vai and his unmistakable shredding on top of the polyrythmic funk of Do You Feel Love, and even Chris Thile and his mandolin, threading the needle on the tender I Heard You Singing. The latter song is actually a fair representation of the artistic direction on the second volume of Djesse: there are more references to the Anglo-Saxon tradition, thanks to bagpipes, mandolin and harps galore. Collier also seems to have taken a step back from his jazz influences: his practice of negative harmony through a capella parts certainly highlighted his vocal abilities, but apart from tracks such as Moon River his signature technique is sparser. That certainly contributes to making the music more relatable and more intimate. If Djesse Vol. 2 doesn’t necessarily break any ground from a theoretical perspective, the production value is on point and it also signals Collier’s emotional growth. As a musician, he certainly has nothing to prove, but his evocative power as an artist is still showing considerable improvement compared to previous records. © Alexis Renaudat/Qobuz

Jacob Collier, the young prodigy whose career was spring-boarded by the popularity of his YouTube videos, has made a name for himself by fusing jazz and vocals with groove, folk, trip-hop, classical, Brazilian gospel and soul. His first album in 2016, the aptly titled In My Room (a reference to his cover of the Beach Boys song with the same name), was influenced by great soul artists like Stevie Wonder, Bobby McFerrin and Ed Motta. Two years later with Djesse Vol.1 which he recorded with the Metropole Orkest conducted by Jules Buckley, Collier reveals a new facet to his musical talent and ability to think outside of the box. For this album, he wrote the compositions and arrangements and clearly moves away from jazz to embrace a variety of genres: pop, gospel, musical, world, soul, the list is endless. His symphonic and melodious music is supported by the voices of groups Take 6 and Voces8, soul sister Laura Mvula, Moroccan Hamid El Kasri and even his own mother, Suzie Collier. In this musical pick-and-mix, Jacob Collier even covers Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic from The Police and All Night Long from Lionel Richie to make this journey even crazier. © Clotilde Maréchal/Qobuz

Overblown YouTube success can sometimes do much to harm an artist’s integrity. Sometimes. In this case, the web’s favourite son is verging on prodigious. And “son” is indeed fitting, when you remember that Jacob was only 21 when this album came out. Born and raised by YouTube, the young talent put up videos of himself performing, but with a twist. In each video, filmed at his home studio, Jacob plays all the parts (on a dazzling variety of instruments) and sings all the harmonies. Fitting then, that this album is called In My Room. On it, the young Brit has opted for his trademark blend of jazz fusion and vocal heavy songwriting, while dipping both into the sparkling waters of groove, folk, trip-hop, classical, Brazilian, gospel and soul! Thanks to his pretty elastic voice, Jacob Collier bases his sound on solid ground (difficult not to think of Stevie Wonder, Bobby McFerrin or Ed Motta), and whether he’s putting a twist on old classics or performing his own, his flamboyant maestro attitude is captivating. A real revelation. @CM/Qobuz
