Jamie Cullum’s sixth album is the sound of a man both at peace
with himself and in playful, creative battle with his inspirations.
For the first time he’s recorded with his live band; for the first
time he’s written most of the songs himself, with the occasional
help of his brother Ben. And never before has he used, in the case
of many of the songs, the original easy-going, DIY home demos as
the blueprint for the finished articles. For a while iPhone apps
and cassette recorders were his go-to “instruments.” It’s also,
probably, the first Cullum album that was largely penned while the
artist was in his pajamas.
This new album is called Momentum with good reason: it’s
the pop-filled sound of on artist on a creative roll, bursting with
ideas and inspirations, and allowed full creative reign by his new
label, Island. With Momentum—and by channeling
momentum—Jamie Cullum is enjoying a newfound musical freedom.
This event is presented by Live Nation.
