The Monte-Carlo Jazz Festival: Jamie Cullum
November 24 @ 8:30 pm - 10:30 pm€85
On November 24th, Jamie Cullum is waiting for you at the Opera Garnier Monte-Carlo for a completely jazz night and much more…
On the release of his latest album ‘Taller’ Jamie Cullum said: “My music is fundamentally that of a jazz fan!” In fact, at barely twenty, the artist scandalized the jazz world, jostling a selection of nuggets from the “Great American Song Book” with his youthful ardor to give a decidedly “pop jazz” version. Forty years old now, a handful of gold records and Grammy Awards in his pocket, Jamie Cullum is definitely part of the great family of vocal jazz and no one would question his legitimacy. Still with the same enthusiasm, but rich in a maturity that extends to his phrasing and his increasingly assertive talents as a composer, Jamie Cullum continues to portray his vision of jazz. In 2004, he participated in the soundtrack of the Bridget Jones film by covering the song “Everlasting Love”. In 2008, he composed ballad Gran Torino, for the film of the same name by Clint Eastwood. After the first Monegasque Red Cross Summer Concert last July, the artist returns to Monaco on the stage of the Opéra Garnier Monte-Carlo.
