For Jesse Cook, music has been a journey. Sonically and literally. His new release, One World, begins another chapter in the multi-tasking artist, composer and producer’s quest. His destination: The digital realm. To create the disc’s emotive melodies, fluid grooves and rich sonic tapestries, he incorporated technology more than ever before.
The Paris-born, Toronto-raised Cook himself is a product of cross pollination and his guitar compositions incorporate rumba, gypsy, flamenco, Latin, Afro-Cuban, jazz and classical motifs into multicultural amalgams. On previous discs, Cook traveled extensively and recorded in disparate locales in order to foster authenticity. However, on “One World,” he opted to sonically explore far-reaching lands from his home studio while incorporating more modern technology and electronics than ever harnessed on past ventures. Cook’s alluring guitar prowess remains the focal point - expressive, poetic, evocative and emotionally stirring.
