British singer, multi-instrumentalist, and production wunderkind Jacob Collier went viral on YouTube, catching the attention of Quincy Jones. His 2016 album, In My Room, won 2 Grammys and a Jazz FM Award. This album led to collaborations and performances with Herbie Hancock, and Pharrell, as well as a TED Talk, a BBC Proms concert and more. In January 2018, Collier wrote Djesse, a universal wonder featuring contributions from a global cast of Collier’s musical inspirations. It is one of the most audacious recording projects to emerge this decade from someone who is already established as one of music’s most brazen new minds. Jacob Collier doesn’t merely embrace globalism; he lives it, sings it, arranges for it through songs that fight for something—music and its power to remind us of the connections we all share, the humanity of being alive at all. He last played solo at TD JazzFest 2017, but is joined this time by a band for an awe-inspiring performance that is sure to both dazzle and electrify.
