Musical polymath, multi-instrumentalist, harmonic badass, and all around cool dude Jacob Collier's insanely impressive cover of All Night Long.

This has warmed my cold cynical heart today.

It's neat to see him with a group like Take 6 who is obviously an inspiration for the type of things he does. Seeing them reminded me of their collaboration with k.d. lang for the Dick Tracy soundtrack "Riding the Rails", a song I hadn't thought of for probably 25 years at least and is making me feel very warm as well.

Thanks for sharing this.

I was like, "MAN this sounds like Take 6." And then I was like, "Oh, it is!"

Haha, I also thought, Wait, are those guys Take 6?

What an amazing kid, and I didn't expect such a deep voice to come out of someone who looks so young.

This of how we all felt when Rick Astley took over MTV for a while back in the 80s!

This is excellent. The video is very inventive and a lot of fun. Very talented young man, and how nice to see Take 6 again! I'm so glad you posted this -- it's joyous!
