I’ve decided to bring back my music feature Thursday Tunes on a semi-regular basis. There’s just so much great new music out there, I can’t help but want to share it!
Jamie Cullum was one of those artists I took a chance on, but I liked the description of his music and the sound samples I got to listen to from his 2010 album The Pursuit. I’m so glad I took the plunge – he has a great jazz sound, and I absolutely love his piano playing. He has some great original songs, but also some solid covers. You may have heard his song “Gran Torino” from the movie of the same name. His song “I’m All Over It” is just a lot of fun, reminiscent of a Ben Folds song. I absolutely love his cover of Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop the Music” – it’s so melodic, it’s hard to believe it’s the same song! The Pursuit can be purchased from the Amazon MP3 Store for $9.49.
