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