WHARGARBL TV – Review of The Pursuit

Hello Whargarblers, it has been a month since I’ve done a music review and I apologize for slacking. For my 5th review, I bring you Jamie Cullum: The Pusuit. It was released March 2nd 2010 on the Verve Forecast label. For those of you that have never heard of Jaime Cullum, he is an english singer/songwriter/jazz pianist. This is the fifth album from Jamie Cullum and he wrote or co-wrote 9 of the 14 tracks on this album.
“The Pursuit” greatly shows what a Jaime Cullum album should sound like. It’s an album filled with cover songs, fast-paced/high energy songs, and slow ballads/relaxed-laid back songs; an all around great album. Here’s what Jaime Cullum had to say about the album:
“It was the right time for me to take myself out of my comfort zone, and to push myself to be bolder. I wanted to build on the things I’ve already done, but I also wanted to reinvent myself. I like that this album journeys from a big-band track at the start to a proggy house/dance track at the end, because it’s all me. But if the only thing that people notice is that this album is stylistically all over the place, then I will feel I have failed in some way.” Personally, I don’t think he failed with this album at all and being “stylistically all over the place” is a good thing
