Five on Friday - Jamie Cullum

Posted: Friday, January 26, 2007 by Travis Cody in

There's been a lot of music posted the last few days. I do something I like to call Tuesday Tunes, where I select a genre and post some of my favorites. I was going to save this artist for next Tuesday. I was going to do Friday Facts today. But one of his songs played randomly on my Ipod during my drive home last night, and I just had to share today.

I've posted about this young man in other places. He is a talented singer/songwriter and a wonderful musician. He also has a tremendous respect for classic standards, and the ability to interpret them that makes them fresh and accessible. Just listen.

Yes, the title of this post is Five on Friday. But it's my blog and Jamie is one of my favorite artists. So I am exercising my royal authority as King of this Blog Space. I now offer two bonus tracks, so you can understand Jamie's grasp of and respect for the standards.

  1. Hey, thanks for the tracks. We're big fans of Harry Connick and Michael Buble and I'm liking what I hear so far.

    Beautiful songs, Trav. I just sat here with my eyes shut and let it wash over me. I'm so glad to see the standards making such a comeback lately. So often, we equate old with outdated. Some things are timeless, though.

    Oh - fyi - got Yahoo Messenger now. My dear bro set me up. Will be looking to add you to my contacts, ok?

    I had to turn up the volume and dance while this was playing. How could I not know about this singer? Thank you for the introduction.
