Album Review

Jamie Cullum tipped too heavily toward coffeehouse electronica on his fourth album, Catching Tales, obscuring his charms as both a jazzy pianist and a soft rock crooner, so he wisely scales back to his strengths on The Pursuit. Despite a brassy opening cover of Cole Porter’s “Just One of Those Things,” The Pursuit is hardly a retreat to Harry Connick, Jr. territory. Cullum anchors himself within melodic soft rock, providing a base for incorporating both his jazz and persistent electronica infatuations. Since The Pursuit is produced as a pop album, those electronica flourishes wind up seeming seamless, underscoring what Cullum does best: unabashedly mainstream adult pop, whether it’s the insistent rush of “Mixtape” or the wonderful ‘70s throwback “I’m All Over It.” Much of The Pursuit mines this fertilely mellow vein, producing a bunch of understatedly melodic music whose consistency suggests that Cullum realizes his strength as a soft rock singer/songwriter.

Customer Reviews

I am all over this.......

I have been waiting for something new from Jamie Cullum for as long as I fist listened to Catching Tales. Fantastic songs sung wonderfully for of energy, grit and sole. Grace pace and style with an instant love of the song the first time you hear it. Thankyou Jamie the world is a great place when your fingers bless the piano and your voice fills my head. Looking very much forwards to seeing you live next year.

Absolutely Astounding

Easily the best album this man has ever made. It's just inspired.

I don't know how Jamie has topped Twenty Something - but he has.

10/10 - and then some.

Thank You!

What a way to repay every single second that I've waited for this Album! A MUST-BUY!

British pianist/vocalist Jamie Cullum mixes jazz with melodic pop and rock into a crossover style that calls to mind such artists as Harry Connick, Jr. and Norah Jones. In that vein, Cullum will just as often cover a swinging jazz standard as a modern rock song, and his original compositions deftly move from earnest ballads to songs of sardonic wit. Having played guitar and piano since age eight, Cullum developed an avid interest in jazz passed down from his older brother Ben. Inspired by such piano...
