Jamie Cullum has been generating a significant buzz on the London scene of late. The 22-year old jazz singer with the pop star looks (his sardonic take on that particular subject is enshrined on ‘I Want to be a Popstar’, the last track of Pointless Nostalgic, his new debut CD on Candid) is apparently attracting an unusually youthful and heavily female following for his interpretations of classic jazz standards. Jamie’s assured and coolly contemporary handling of standards like “Too Close for Comfort’ or ‘In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning’ makes it easy to see why he has been turning heads, and this gig provides a chance to check him out live in Scotland for the first time.
