This return goes by the name "Interlude": Jamie Cullum, is a musician and songwriter for years as successful as a radio presenter for the BBC, published his new jazz album, guests to the well Laura Mvula and Gregory Porter counting. The first single "Do not Let Me Be Misunderstood"Cullum has recorded with the Grammy-winning Gregory Porter.
The musical taste of Jamie Cullum is mildly eclectic: As a live musician he is also enjoying a cracking reputation because it has long been known that its sold-out concerts may include different elements, everything from moving ballads to wild live sampling Sessions or spontaneous beat-box deposits.
His own publications fit into any category known and only recently he was a guest on the albums of Labrinth, Rizzle Kicks, Birdy or the Alt-hop supergroup Deltron 3030 to listen. On self-confidence is lacking Cullum any more than to experimentation - just may be doing then but remember that he is still the best-selling British jazz musicians of all time, despite all genre digressions and StilgrÄtschen.
His radio program for the BBC is the jazz show of listeners across Europe and also on his new album "Interlude" he turns now so this old love: the Jazz. "Interlude" combines a total of twelve shots, mostly compositions from the early days of jazz who Cullum has taken on very classical way - namely in a room, in a session with incredibly good musicians, just as before ie.
While it is by bus from a summer festival to the next move, Jamie describes his upcoming album with the following words: "When my last album 'Momentum'Was in the box, I had already become accustomed, not only to stop, but continue to work the same on the next song ideas. Also, I was just being in negotiations with my label, and so I was Not at all clear about what actually should come after.
My jazz program for BBC Radio 2 was at the time already about three years, and thus I had a lot to know grandiose musicians. Of course I knew the British jazz scene already pretty good, but this program had enabled me to compose myself with some of the main protagonists of this ultra-vivid scene, me talk intensively with them, including great detail about music talking.
One of the musicians that I have thus come to know, for example, personally, Ben Lamdin, otherwise under the name Nostalgia 77 works. Ben and I are about the same age. We both grew up with different things ... with rock, Drum Bass, Hip Hop, and we both have the Jazz actually only by people like DJ Shadow or A Tribe Called Quest fOr us discovered.
Ben was finally so fascinated by jazz, which, as it was recorded in its early days, that he has built up in Willesden, North London, a truly incredible analog studio behind a fish market. For about ten years he invites like-minded one there and has included in this studio a fantastic album after another. I was from the beginning a huge fan of his music.
Well, after our interview in the show came to us in any case the idea of doing something together, so I booked the same time three days in his studio, booked guest musicians to and worked in advance intensively with bassist of Nostalgia 77, Riaan Vosloo, on the arrangements. A few weeks later, it was a cold January morning, we went so then in this studio and recorded the whole album at: Complete live, each in very few takes recorded, because in most cases the first try everything fit.
So 16 songs were created in three days. What Ben and I it wanted to avoid in any case, were the obvious jazz standards, but this was not particularly difficult, after all, we are both real-Crate Digger. We love aufzutun rare vinyl treasures, and so that was our approach in terms of song selection and the type of arrangements. The sessions themselves, we have recorded on analog tape, we wanted to capture this completely unpolished sound, this live sound in the studio.
And then I wanted to be here for two pieces as a duet and indeed also with people that I had discovered through my radio show: Laura Mvula and Gregory Porter - both the way musicians who've Ever on the radio to listen to my show for the first time. All this adds up so 'Interlude'. Bottom line, it is an album that is meant as a nod that celebrates those musicians I've met through my work as a radio presenter.
It celebrates young, British, mega hot jazz talent that not everyone has on the screen, and it comes to exactly the sound that, so we all love that we came together because behind this old fish market very. 'Interlude' is a true community project. I realized that you have to bring together the right people at the right club - and you can already make a record exactly as it should be: Extremely spontaneously, with an incredible amount of technical know-how and skills under one roof - and mad much fun in the matter. We wanted to make an album as you would do it before. And I believe we have succeeded. "
At the same time the coming jazz album Jamie has given the opportunity to his other passion - photography - pursue: For some time already, the passionate amateur photographer working on his skill behind the lens, and as it then why was how the artwork of the album should look, he took the photographer friend Michael Agel (Leica) to the side to simply take the whole thing into their own hands.
During the last US tour Jamie was a lot of Agel learn by places and people he met on the road, documented - while Michael bargain Jamie photographed, both on stage and behind the scenes. "The photograph fascinated me since the day on which I saved a little boy my mother's old camera from the attic. Having the opportunity to work with someone like Michael and Leica, means I'm really an awful lot. It's amazing that I can publish my own photos with the music this time. " The cover of "Interlude" also adorns one of the resulting photos; the deluxe version of the album will also be included with an exclusive photo booklet.
