Hot video: Quincy Jones’s new protégé lives in Finchley, north London

Meet Jacob Collier. He’s 19, lives in Maggie Thatcher’s old constituency and is described to us by one conductor as ‘the closest thing to Mozart I’ve ever seen’. Jacob is working with legends (see pic below) and has a contract with Universal (they’ve kept it under wraps).

This new video you have to see. It’s his own arrangement of Fascinatin’ Rhythm in which Jacob, plays and sings all 14 parts.

    • Maybe, inasmuch as he seems to come from a middle-class household which sets store by education.

  • Absolutely stupefying! The video was sent to me yesterday by a friend who’s a well-known arranger. Quincy’s backing the right horse.

  • Quite amazing! I sent a copy of this and another of his you tube vdos to one of the world’s finest classical musicians, now retired from the concert platform. His comment? “He is a HUGE talent!”
