Jamie Cullum: Come Together

It’s Tasty Licks Tuesday and here’s a little number I discovered yesterday from one of my favorite pianists. Jamie Cullum is equally at home playing jazz or rock and this impromptu performance for BBC Radio 2’s 2DAY. Cullum was asked to do The Beatles’ “Come Together” and he tore into the tune without any difficulty. Although he was skeptical that he would get the lyrics correct, he did pretty good in my book - I think he got them all correct. 

This particular live recording shows the great talent that Cullum is – he is confident in his abilities, but not cocky. On a lighter note, the blue lights give Cullum a strange cast – sort of reminiscent of The Diva in “The Fifth Element.”
