Already a sensation in his native England, year-old piano man Jamie Cullum comes off like a hip amalgamation of Harry Connick, Jr. Jamie Cullum - Twentysomething with Blue Note's crossover wunderkind Norah JonesCullum works best when he's not trying too hard to please hardcore jazz aficionados, but it's not too difficult to imagine his bonus-track version of Pharrell Williams ' "Frontin'" turning some jazz fans onto the Neptunes. Cullum has a warm voice with a slight rasp that retains a bit of his Brit accent even though his influences -- Nat King ColeFrank SinatraTom Waits -- are resolutely American.
Truthfully, Cullum isn't the most accomplished vocalist and his piano chops are pleasant at best -- Oscar Peterson he ain't. That said, he's still a kick. What he lacks in technique he makes up for in swagger and smarts as many of his original compositions reveal.
On the swinging and wickedly Reduced To Clear - Various - Punk Rock Scotland: Volume 3 title track -- a take on postgraduate slackerdom -- Cullum sardonically laments, "After years of expensive education, a car full of books and anticipation, I'm an expert on Shakespeare and that's a hell of a lot but the world don't need scholars as much as I thought.
Also compelling are his choices of cover tunes, as he is able to imprint his own persona on the songs while magnifying what made them brilliant to begin with. Jamie Cullum - TwentysomethingCullum treats jazz standards as modern pop tunes, reworking them into contemporary styles that are neither cynical nor awkward. In fact, his atmospheric, '70s AM pop take on "Singin' in the Rain," replete with string backgrounds and Cullum 's percolating Rhodes keyboard, is one of the most appealing cuts on the album, lending the Great American Songbook warhorse an air of virginity.
