Jacob Collier: Moon River – COOL HUNTING

6

Made using hundreds upon hundreds of recordings of his own voice and over 100 more features, Jacob Collier’s “Moon River” is an a cappella rendition of the Henry Mancini and Johnny Mercer classic. Inflecting his voice to cover the track’s high, low and more symphonic moments, Collier’s version grows and bellows out into a massive, orchestra-like performance. Herbie Hancock, Daniel Caesar, Ty Dolla $ign, Lianne La Havas and others lend vocals to the first half of the song, but Collier carries it through the end-accompanied by a video that features a kaleidoscope-like ensemble of his recorded takes.
