Jacob Collier

When various authoritative printed material call you Jazz music’s new messiah, it has to put the “no pressure” adage to the test. And then when Snarky Puppy features you in their latest aural feast, the hype does tend to get a bit hysterical.

But Jacob Collier, England’s latest merchant of sound, seems to be handling it rather well, what with a pathbreaking association with MIT {that’s the Massachusetts Institute, yes!} to bring his unique show to stage, and a new album. Good enough to boast about on the next Facebook update, or atleast to listen to? Well, give it a try, then!
