Metropole Orkest & Jacob Collier

Conducted by Jules Buckley

Jules Buckley, dirigent

Jacob Collier, zang/piano

Metropole Orkest and the multi-talented Jacob Collier first met for the tribute to Quincy Jones ate the 2016 BBC Proms. Collier, a Quincy Jones protegee, made a great impression with a cover of ‘Human Nature’ and a beautifully orchestrated version of his own ‘In The Real Early Morning’. A year later he and Cory Henry shared the stage with Metropole Orkest once more at the North Sea Jazz Festival, where the idea to continue the successful collaboration was born.

Jules Buckley on Jacob: “He is only 23 years old, it’s crazy. Each musical journey Jacob goes on is going to throw up different things over the years, it’s cool to join him on this bit. I’m really curious to see what happens when he gets to my age. He is like a Jedi and god knows what he’s going to be like when he hits 30 or 40. He’s going to some crazy force!”

Metropole Orkest and Jacob will be performing songs of his new studio album (recorded with the orchestra earlier this year) and other pieces.

The concert in Het Concertgebouw is part of Robeco SummerNights.
