Jamie Cullum: The Pursuit

AKIE BERMISS: Jamie Cullum is a kind of enigma in the music business. He’s a wild jazz piano-playing rockstar from England. He’s a bit like the UK’s Michael Buble, only much grittier and irreverent. I came to know his music in 2005 when I came across his Twentysomething album. I remember thinking it was a pretty great record. A good amount of jazz, pop, and piano. The record had a particularly acoustic and direct quality to it, like you might walk into a tiny jazz club and hear the band playing any given track. Since that record, though, Cullum has gotten a little produced and overwrought for my tastes. His latest release, The Pursuit, is a little less prefab sounding.
