Music Tuesday: YouTube Jazz With Jamie Cullum

He is the biggest selling British jazz artist of all time, Clint Eastwood personally invited him to play at Monterey (which you have to say is pretty cool) and today Jamie Cullum takes control of Music Tuesday, sharing some of his favourite YouTube videos and showcasing tracks from his new album, “The Pursuit”.


“Who doesn’t love YouTube?” asks Jamie. “I love YouTube. There are some amazing clips of some of the old jazz musicians – loads of footage of these guys playing that I have never seen. It’s basically a treasure trove for a music geek like me.”






Herbie Hancock showing the kids of "Sesame Street" the wonders of synthesiser technology and a closer look at how Miles Davis constructed landmark album “Kind Of Blue” are two of the treats that Jamie has unearthed and featured alongside a behind the scenes look at the shoot of “I’m All Over It” and his great cover of Rihanna’s “Don’t Stop The Music”.


Some great selections from a self-confessed 'geek', and with that we'd like to thank Jamie Cullum for his time and research. Herbie Hancock on "Sesame Street" sampling "Fresh Prince Of Bel Air" actress Tatyana Ali's youthful voice and turning it into a tune? Only on YouTube, people... only on YouTube.


Have fun,

YouTube, we realise you got the music videos back to the UK. But this is getting old now. Advertising less than good artisits to try and promote them.
