Jamie Cullum at Jazz à Vienne

In 2011, with classic jazz in bright new colours and popular dance tunes, the brilliant British singer and pianist's fifth album was an illustration of his eclectic taste. The Rocheford-born musician admits to a variety of influences, already apparent in his early career at the turn of the century. His repertoire ranges from standards by Gershwin and contemporary trip-hop influences, combining them with his own sense of harmony and moving from one to the other at breakneck speed. After the worldwide success of 'Catching Tales' in 2005, Cullum took a break for a few years. He nevertheless collaborated with Clint Eastwood on the soundtrack to 'Gran Torino'. In 2012, he appeared on French television next to singer Sophie Maurin in the charming pop song 'Far Away'. His sixth album, 'Momentum', was released last spring. Jamie Cullum remains true to himself, at once a rock star and a crooner, with his unmistakable English accent. This amazing stage performer is back in Vienna (he was here in 2011) with an orchestra more like a rock band: 'It's the first time I'm older than the other musicians', he says. Thirteen years after his sensational entrance on the jazz (pop, rock ?) scene, Jamie is back with a vengeance.
