    Jacob Collier has officially kickstarted his Djesse journey—the jazz wunderkind released the first volume of his mammoth project last Friday.

    This first volume comprises nine of the 40 songs in the entire Djesse project, including advance singles “With the Love in My Heart” and “All Night Long.” Other standouts are “Ocean Wide, Canyon Deep” featuring British singer Laura Mvula and “Everlasting Motion” with Moroccan gnawa musician Hamid El Kasri.

    Djesse was a huge undertaking for Collier: “Never have I given so much energy to something in my whole life,” he said on Twitter.
