JACOB COLLIER AT THE SHOWBOX
I've never been to a more interactive show than the one last night. Jacob used the audience as another instrument, directing their singing on several songs. Sound was fantastic and Jacob's virtuosity was apparent throughout, supported with a fantastic band. He asked how many in the audience were musicians and probably 60%+ raised their hands. Jazz chord voicings and various time signatures were appreciated by all. His layers vocals (as well as the Portuguese keyboardist/vocalist, she was amazing!) soared through a range that was amazing. His music has so much emotional appeal and color, it was so much more than showing off musical chops.

Jacob Collier performed at the Showbox with his 3 bandmates on Thursday, June 26, 2019. Energy, Harmony, Rhythms and an audience FULL of musicians who dig the harmonies and polyrhythms and Fun. They performed a full two hour show of songs, some new, some old, some originals. The Showbox was a steam bath by the end. The lights and sound were superb. Maybe tweak the pacing and placement of tunes. Loved Danny Boy but the song that followed it had the same feel and literally put someone next to me to sleep. Have mercy. It's a weeknight and most of us have day gigs. <3
