Jamie Cullum dazzles an audience devoted to his music
British pianist Jamie Cullum last night offered the audience at his concert in Fuengirola a brilliant and fun. In it, there were times to slow songs, which created a great contrast to the busiest of the artist. He mixes very well thought out themes of his disks Antigen the most modern, and could not miss the best known: I Get a Kick Out of You, Do not Stop the Music, What a Difference a Day Made or cover of Jimi Hendrix Wind Cries Mary.
Before the advent of Cullum, held on 22:30 pm, Virginia served as opening act Labuat accompanied on piano by Iñaki García. They played hard topics of Sweet Home, where there are jazz standards like All of me and own compositions. Leaving the end was the best known: The Time is Now.
The concert began with the subject of his latest album I'm All Over It, and was followed quickly Get Your Way, Catching Tales (and got the piano for the first time) and then I Get a Kick Out of You, of Twentysomething. The title song of this album also touched later. There was much improvisation, as is usual in the solos of pianist.
The band that accompanied him was top quality. Chris Hill was on bass, Brad Webb on drums, Tom Richards on saxophone, keyboards and vocals and Rory Simmons on guitar and trumpet. There were five musicians who sound filled the Sohail Castle in Fuengirola, under the watchful gaze of hundreds of people who surrendered completely to the pianist.
Jamie Cullum was playing until after midnight and said he was having a great time. In fact, said he would return.One issue that was particularly nice was High and Dry, as the audience divided into three zones that were three different voices, and rode in a moment a chorus that sounded great. Wind Cries Mary was the penultimate issue that touched before leaving, and everyone went completely crazy.
In short, an amazing concert that most of the audience had to listen up, but I think the best way to enjoy this musician is in this way.
