Jacob Collier (b. 1994)

This precocious, open, intelligent young musician struck me with his facility with harmony. His arrangements of well-known songs are delightfully complex to hear, as he brings them new freshness. For a cathartic example, hear his extraordinary arrangement and production of Henry Mancini’s Moon River.

Lately he says he’s discovered jazz. He’s been picked up by Quincy Jones’s management company and has a bright future.
