Jacob Collier only needed to come on stage to win the audience over. A Zappa-like opening laid Collier’s intentions bare. Perfect control, polyrhythmic, multi-instrumental: impressive. The first hour was pure perfection. Unfortunately, the show started to derail after that one hour. The ‘community singing’ was nice at first, but after the zillionth time it got tiresome.
But, the The Beach Boys cover In My Room was a beautiful intimate acoustic performance.
