Jamie Cullum

Jamie Cullum - FUV Live - 2015

by Carmel Holt

Jamie Cullum’s latest album, Interlude, signals a change in approach for this ambitious artist. For one thing, it wasn’t initially intended to be an album at all. Choosing to finance the project himself and not telling his label, Cullum went into the studio with producer Benedic Lamdin and Lamdin's band Nostalgia 77 in January 2013, recording a collection of songs in a mere three days. That experiment evolved into Interlude. Although Cullum considers it his first album of pure jazz, Interlude does include covers of songs by Sufjan Stevens and Randy Newman. Nevertheless, the decision to dive headlong into an exploration of eclectic jazz standards is what sets this project apart from anything else Cullum has ever done.

Jamie Cullum - Words and Music - 2006

by Rita Houston
The Jamie Cullum songbook covers works from Radiohead to Cole Porter to Jamie himself, and whether he's adding jazz to rock, or hip-hop to a standard, he loves discovering new music and sharing it with others. 'Catching Tales' is his latest album, and fresh off a trip to Brazil, Jamie sat down at the piano in Studio-A for a conversation with Rita Houston.
