For Jesse Cook, music has been a journey. Holding 11 JUNO nominations to his credit and one win for 2000’s, Free Fall, his latest work is the culmination of two decades crisscrossing the world in restless pursuit of inspiration, innovation and collaboration. The Paris-born, Toronto-raised Cook changed course for his ninth studio album, One World. Instead of exotic locales, he stayed home in his studio. Instead of a foreign legion of performers, he relied on his own devices. And instead of exploring cul de sacs of music, flamenco, classical, rumba, world beat, pop, blues or jazz, he united them. Cook’s masterful guitar work commands centre stage with its elegant balance of subtlety, in-the-moment honesty and blazing technical prowess.
