Jamie Cullum at CareFusion Newport Jazz Festival
Tuesday, August 10, 2010
This weekend, dozens of jazz performers delighted attentive audiences on the beautiful Newport waterfront – among them was up and comer and crowd favorite Jamie Cullum, British jazz pianist and singer songwriter. Cullum appeared at the Carefusion Newport Jazz Festival to kick off his 2010 world tour in support of his new album, The Pursuit.
Onstage himself a few hours later, Cullum’s talent and love for jazz music was palpable. He played with a unparalleled energy, even hopping up onto his piano and leaping off – in the middle of a song. (Later, he smilingly informed the audience he wasn’t supposed to do that, but did it anyway because... he always does.)
Offstage, Cullum was as enthusiastic about music, and humble.
