Bigups to y mate Tom over at Elsham Music for sharing this iece of genius from a precocious little bugger by the name of Jacob Collier. I think we can probably expect big things from this young fellow in the coming years.
This is a film I made a couple of years ago on a visit to Rio to see Lampreia Rodrigo. Big love to Stephanie Taskforce for lending me the camera, Ana Cristina Simon Rosa for the help, Vitor Chaves for being properly hilarious,Ricardo Toledo for the lovely title design, Carlos Sant’anna, Rodrigo Lampreia, Rodrigo Braga, Alan Gonzaga, Juninho Duvale, Beto Landauand all the others for being awesome musicians, and accommodating subjects and most importantly Anthony Austin for making my work a joy,<p><a href=”http://vimeo.com/106833971″>O DANADO DO SAMBA – That Damn Samba</a> from <a href=”http://vimeo.com/boshproductions”>Bosh</a> on <a href=”https://vimeo.com”>Vimeo</a>.</p>

It’s been years since I heard and 4 Hero. Took me back to being 15 again. Lovely stuff here, and I’m double happy it’s the remix for one of my favourite singers of the moment, Mart’nalia. Discovered her through my mate Rodrigo Lampreia a few years ago in Rio and fell in love with her voice and her vibe. Really hope it gets her some international profile. She deserves it.
There are just too many excellent things happening all at once here for me to get my head around. I’ve been working with Gilles Peterson, and Rob Galliano, and a whole load of my Brazilian Musical heroes, and my mate Ben , and we’ve made a feature length documentary, and it’s on in the flipping cinema.

I have never received such a lesson in humility. He totally blew my mind. So many things I am interested in, musically, linguistically, filmically, culturally, all rolled into one perfect performance onstage, in front of a bespoke piece of film which both accompanied and was part of the music. It’s amazing. I went straight back home and bought it, and listening to it this morning before I go to work, it has lost none of its power.
Go and buy it at once. The video version. Or see him live if you can. I can’t recommend him any higher. It’s close to perfection.
