I was never a jazz fan but after hearing Jamie Cullum I began to take notice. I watched the 'Live at Blenheim Palace' DVD and was instantly converted! His renditions of old traditional classic songs turn them into NEW classics. The setting, the atmosphere and the shear talent of Jamie Cullum have changed my views of 'jazz'. My absolute favourite track is an 'Eleanor Rigby' style version of the classic Beachboys song 'God Only Knows'. I would never have believed that one of my all time favourite songs could have been re-styled so brilliantly. How someone so young has accumulated so much talent so quickly is beyond me. I don't even try to understand how he does it, I just sit back and enjoy every last minute of a superb performance.
