Have been delving into some recent music and trying to stay "current" to a minimal degree with modern music I came across Jacob Collier -- quite a talented and musical one-man band who is making a name for himself purely based on his musicality and output..

There is a fascinating interview with him on the subject of music theory (Part 2 posted here, Part 1 is also very interesting), where I almost hear a young Ted Greene talking, given Jacob's extensive knowledge of harmony, chord voicings, and rhythms...something tells me Ted would have found this young 21 year old very endearing.




Second link here is Jacob's version of Danny Boy which is a recurring tune of discussion here in the Forums. Thought the Danny Boy fans would find this rendition to be interesting -- very cool chords choices, some cool close harmony, and modern sounds...




Maybe my pre-teen kids will find me more musically "with it", if I talk to them about Jacob Collier, rather than Bach and Ted Greene [smile]

That's very interesting.  I appreciate his intelligence and enthusiasm.

The idea of using "negative harmony," that is the inversion of familiar music structures flipped around a particular pivot pitch, for the purpose of idea generation, for creativity, is fascinating.

Thank you for sharing this.

Thank you so much!!!  Like Ted, he has the "beautiful harmony" thing going on, but ck out his stevie wonder arrangements on You tube.  Whew!

I am familiar with his work from some time ago.  The thing I find interesting is that much of his harmony is created with stacks of 5 or 6 notes, but often less.  I don't know if I've got the energy to transpose on to guitar, but I think it would be worthwhile even just for snippits.
6 voices . . .guitar . . . hmmm . . . any takers?

Jacob Collier Twitted saying, "I have learned so much from Ted Greene."
