Vocal Jazz - Released December 7, 2018 | Decca (UMO)

Hi-Res
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
