"World music/jazz guitarist Jesse Cook wraps up his U.S. tour this weekend on April 24. He was touring the U.S., from his native Canada, to support the release of his ninth studio album, One World, on eOne Music. The album debuted at No. 1 on the jazz and world music charts in Canada, and debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard Top Jazz Albums chart and No. 4 on the World Albums chart in the U.S. The Juno Award winner's latest album is a sonic exploration drawing on the sounds and cultural wonders of Constantinople as inspiration, and has been lauded by critics and music fans alike."

On creating the video, Cook explains...

"I shot this video while at home in Canada between the second and third legs of my US tour. I like to sit in my studio with my guitar and a loop station and see what happens. It's like composing in real time. I try do a bunch of these every day. If I like one, I'll save it, and it might end up as a song on my next album."
