Now Listening: Djesse Vol. 3 by Jacob Collier
Jacob Collier delivers a masterpiece with interesting, genre-bending sounds, coupled with perfectly chosen collaborations
I don’t remember when I first heard of Jacob Collier, but I became an instant fan. I mean, go watch his Tiny Desk Concert, or watch him do one of his Logic session breakdowns, or hear him dissect a Stevie Wonder song with a knowledge about music that’ll just blow you away. No matter which one of those links you click, you’ll quickly catch on that Jacob is nothing short of a musical genius.
Djesse Vol. 3 is listed in the Jazz genre, but I can’t really tell you what it is. It’s a mix of many different sounds, and pulls it off masterfully. The album also happens to be full of some fantastic collaborations with Mahalia, Tori Kelly, Ty Dolla $ign, Kiana Ledé, and Daniel Caesar among others.
This is one I definitely recommend you listen to in headphones.
