About a month ago I heard about half of Jamie Cullum's new album 'Catching Tales'. If you loved Twentysomething and Pointless Nostalgic, you will love this album even more. Varying from funky, up-beat songs like the first single 'Get Your Way', to beautiful guitar-based songs like 'London Skies' to mad-dancy fun in 'Mind Trick'. Add to that a collaboration with Guy Chambers called 'Oh God' and the very touching 'Back to the ground', 'Photographs' and 'My Yard', plus the cheeky Pharrell tune 'Wifey'. So, don't hestitate and get this fabulous new album when you can. You won't regret it!
I found Jamie by accident- i was watching parkinson and saw this young man. I din't think anything until he started to tap the piano with the palm of his hands. I was curious, and listened to Jamie perform "i could have danced all night" and from that, i was hooked! I loed his first album, so when i bought this, i was expectingthe same jazz sounds of "twentysomething." I was surprised to hear the tracks and have to admit it took a while to get used to this album as it's very different from the first. However, i now love this album! I love every track because they're different and show a different side of Jamie and what he can do. If you can, get the dvd/cd version of this album he talks about the album, which is interesting, and it's cheap these days. I can't wait for the next album to come out and hope it's as diverse and different as his other albums.
Almost every track on this album is a killer song! One of Cullum's best (after Pointless and Twentysomething...) a return to more standards with some originals helped on the side. The picture on the cover is a great physical representation of what's going on here! AWESOME AWESOME LOVE IT
Impossible to choose the best track on this because they're all SO good..& a great way to start off a Jamie collection if you're a first Time Jamie buyer. I think he really progressed his writing and arranging skills with this release & took his talent from pretty damn good to brilliant!
