A YouTube sensation since 2011, Jacob Collier's music video covers of popular songs feature him playing every instrument and singing every part. Called "jazz's new messiah" by "The Guardian", Collier partnered with MIT to build a one-man audio-visual live performance vehicle, designed and built at MIT. Collier comes to Kresge Auditorium in Cambridge to present the premiere of an experimental piece, accompanied by several new big band arrangements of Collier's music. The one-man band digs into jazz, funk, a cappella and a slew of other genres, bringing fresh and daring musical innovation.
