'One World Tour'
Juno award-winner features new album in Chilliwack Sept 28
Released by Rockitboy
JESSE COOK, music has been a journey, both sonically and literally.
After two decades of crisscrossing the world in his restless pursuit of
inspiration, innovation and collaboration, this virtuoso changed course
for his ninth studio album One World.
Rather than exotic
locales, he stayed home in his studio. Rather than a foreign legion
of performers, he relied on his own devices. And rather than
exploring myriad cul-de-sacs of music he united them. The album
pivots between worlds — past and future, familiar and fresh,
acoustic and electronic — redefined by technology just like every
element of modern life.
The album cover, depicting a vast, ancient tree, personifies the
content. We are all part of just one world and all music represents
branches of a tree all joined to the same deeply rooted trunk.
Despite its humble homemade origins, One World begins another
chapter in the quest of this multi-tasking artist, composer and
producer. To create the disc’s emotive melodies, fluid grooves and
rich sonic tapestries, Cook incorporated technology more than ever
before. The result is a perfect meshing of the personal hybridized
stylings of Jesse himself with modern instruments in a modern
Cook’s vast and varied catalogue has earned 11 Juno nominations
including 3 in 2001 of which he was awarded Best Instrumental Album
for 2000’s Free Fall. To date, 5 of 8 albums have earned Gold Record
status and 2 others Platinum.
This is certain to be another unforgettable evening with this
Canadian Superstar as he continues to explore the constantly
evolving One World of beautiful music.
