About this deal

Jamie Cullum (born 20 August 1979) [1] is an English jazz-pop singer, songwriter and radio presenter. Although primarily a vocalist and pianist, he also accompanies himself on other instruments, including guitar and drums. He has recorded nine studio albums, three compilation albums, one live album and twenty-four singles. Since April 2010, he has presented a weekly Tuesday evening jazz show on BBC Radio 2. [2] Early life [ edit ]

I definitely enjoy Jamie Cullum's "Twentysomething." Many people have blasted it for being too unoriginal, too boring, too "pop" sounding, etc., but the fact remains that this music is fun to listen to. I'd much rather listen to Mr. Cullum's music than Norah Jones or Diana Krall. Cullum runs through standards and originals as if both were his own. He takes songs by artists such as Radiohead and the legendary Jimi Hendrix and puts a spin on them that others wouldn't dare dream of doing. He takes a "no fear" approach to music. Perhaps that is why I enjoy this album so much. While other artists have become media darlings by pawning themselves to the public, Cullum seems to be content with doing his own thing. By being himself, he's captured the attention of millions. He's even played for the Queen.

It was released on 20 October 2003 in Europe, and in May 2004 in the United States. The album has sold 2.5 million copies worldwide, and achieved eleven platinum, eleven gold and two silver certifications. It is the fastest-selling jazz album in chart history and its sales led to Cullum ending 2003 as the UK's highest-selling jazz artist in history. [1] After graduating from Reading University, Cullum released his album Pointless Nostalgic (2002), which stirred interest from broadcasters Michael Parkinson [11] and Melvyn Bragg.

Retrieved 29 January 2012.Well ideally, you want both collaborators to end up being an even more interesting proposition than they would be alone, or at least a different, equal proposition! That’s speaking as a listener. As a creator, I was always look to learn as much as possible from someone else’s process and come away with something I couldn’t have created otherwise. The bright blue vinyl, coupled with a minimalist label design, provides something of a visual treat: rotate the record on the turntable and watch from above and as the grooves create pleasing patterns the disc appears to slow down and speed up, and eventually label and disc appear to rotate in different directions. It’s a fun feature, but most people, I expect, will be more concerned about the sound.

On this release, Cullum performs original material as well as covers and standards. The lead single from the album was "All at Sea" and "These Are The Days/Frontin'" was the highest-charting single at number 12 on the UK Singles Chart. Recorded at London's Mayfair Studios and released in 2003, Twentysomething contains a mix of jazz standards, contemporary covers, and ballads. Due to the acoustic nature of the music, producer Stewart Levine chose to record and mix Twentysomething entirely on analogue tape.

At the end of 2005 Cullum was joined by Tom Richards (saxophonist, occasional guitarist and percussion). Soon after that Sam Wedgwood left to pursue his own solo musical career. At the beginning of 2006 Rory Simmons (trumpeter and guitarist) joined the band as a replacement, bringing the total number of band members (including Cullum himself) to five. Cullum's Jewish father, whose mother had managed to flee Nazi Germany, was born in Jerusalem. His mother, whose father was Indian and mother Burmese, was born in Burma; when the Japanese invaded, the family left Burma and moved to Wales, when his mother was age five. [3] Reviewers lined up to praise the album on its first release, with the revered jazz critic John Fordham writing in The Guardian: “Cullum’s virtues are a remarkable relaxation (which makes music-making, even in a sophisticated studio recording, sound like fun to him), a youthful bounce that makes his work engagingly airy and light, and a hipness of timing that marks him out from many of his competitors.” a b Christgau, Robert (30 November 2004).
