09 Dec New Video of Jacob Collier Live at the JammJam with Quincy Jones and Friends Out Today
At the end of last year, the incomparable Jacob Collier lit up the JammJam with his rendition of Michael Jackson’s song “Human Nature” honoring the legendary Quincy Jones. Today we released the amazing performance ✨ ✨
Jacob’s latest album Djesse Vol. 3 received three 2021 GRAMMY Award nominations, including Album Of The Year. He was also nominated for Best R&B Performance: “All I Need” (with Mahalia & Ty Dolla $ign), and Best Arrangement, Instrumentals & Vocals: “He Won’t Hold You” (Feat. Rapsody). The 26-year-old British musician, producer, songwriter and arranger now has a remarkable seven career GRAMMY Nominations, including four GRAMMY Award wins. Earlier this year, Collier earned two GRAMMY Awards for his Djesse Vol. 1 and Djesse Vol. 2 albums.
The JammJam was filled wall-to-wall with music royalty such as Quincy Jones and the Recording Academy’s Chairman, Harvey Mason Jr. Jacob took the stage to perform a solo version of “She’s Out of My Life,” mesmerizing everyone in the room before delivering his beautiful rendition of “Human Nature.” Jacob looked over at drummer Donald Barrett (Toni Braxton, Seal) and asked him “Can you get me back beat?” and the improv jam started. It extended into a jam that combined the international musical talents of Alfredo Rodriguez (Cuba), Munir Hossn (Brazil), Eric Zayne (Democratic Republic of Congo) and drummer/founder of Jammcard, Elmo Lovano.
