    3. A review of Jamie’s performance at jazz a Juan from Jazzwise Magazine:

      Once again Jamie Cullum proved that he is one of the best British festival acts. His high energy show galvanising the audience (and by no means a ‘young’ audience at that) to leave their seats and bounce up and down in front of the stage.
