Jamie Cullum - Pointless Nostalgic (2002) Retail CD
Pointless Nostalgic is the album that gained Jamie Cullum numerous album of the year and best newcomer accolades. It also got him a spot on Parkinson and eventually saw him land a million pound record deal with Verve--not bad for an LP made on a student loan. It's clear from the outset that Cullum is no minor talent. Taking pride of place with his ample piano skills and hopelessly romantic voice (he hasn't been dubbed "Sinatra in Sneakers" for nothing), he surrounds himself with live musicians to create an album that, as the title suggests, revives a number of past classics. While some wouldmore… argue there's no point in revisiting the past yet again (acknowledged by Cullum in the title), Cullum's considered covers and new arrangements of songs like Warren and Burke's "Devil May Care", Thelonious Monk's "Well You Needn't" and Gershwin's "It Ain't Necessarily So" are justification in themselves. His own songwriting prowess (alongside that of his brother Ben) is showcased on the title track, which shows him more than capable of creating modern songs with a classic and timeless feel. When nostalgia sounds this good, who cares if it's pointless? --Paul Sullivan
