Place between Jamie Lidell and Peter Gabriel
Jazz record part of the series Djesse by Jacob Collier
There are some albums that stick straight-away, while others take a bit more time. I have spent the last few months appreciating Jacob Collier’s sonic world. His tendency to mash-up so many different ideas can be something of an affront. (Is that what makes it a ‘jazz’ record?) However, I feel this is sometimes intentional, as was explained in his Switched on Pop interview. When it clicks though there is a certain joy and exuberance that cannot be escaped.
