Standing on his piano, in the middle of the audience, or taking the cameraman’s spot: Jamie Cullum turns the Auditorium Stravinski upside down each time he performs! A Festival faithful since 2004, the year of his consecration with the album Twentysomething, the British pianist and crooner revisits both jazz standards and hits by Radiohead, Rihanna, and Jimi Hendrix. This insatiable and charismatic performer mixes and reroutes jazz, squeezing from it endless possibilities. According to him, it’s “the only music that lets you go anywhere and connect with all the others”. Since his latest opus, Interlude, on which he invited Gregory Porter and Laura Mvula, Jamie Cullum has released the bouncing single “Work of Art”. At the end of the year, he announced that he had recorded a new album, his most personal to date, the first with 100% original compositions...We’re betting they will once again have the Montreux public on their feet!
