JACOB COLLIER AND FRIENDS (2018)
Jacob Collier's musical career has been meteoric. Still only 23, the multi-instrumentalist has been hailed as a musical genius and jazz prodigy, picking up two Grammy awards for his debut album last year. And now he has his own Prom.
Jacob's solo talents first came to light when he became an internet sensation with his unique covers of songs such as Don't You Worry 'bout a Thing and Fascinating Rhythm. He's since been mentored by some of his heroes, including Quincy Jones and Herbie Hancock, and in 2016 Jacob made a guest appearance at the Quincy Jones Prom.
Jacob Collier and Friends sees him team up once again with Jules Buckley and the Metropole Orkest, joined by special guests, including Take 6, Sam Amidon, Becca Stevens and Hamid El Kasri, for a Prom that features songs from Jacob's debut album, new tracks and their unique reimagining of well-known classics.
