Eight albums already! About to turn forty, this gifted Englishman is back with Taller. The singer-songwriter from Essex relies on his faithful arranger and multi-instrumentalist Troy Miller to produce an opus that’s as concise as it is eclectic, clocking in at less than 40 minutes in length. In it, Cullum questions the responsibility of a father and an artist in our modern society. “Are you a man before your father dies?” / “But what’s a man these days? I hear you cry” / “And are we raising up our children right” on the piano/vocal song The Age Of Anxiety. The British artist showcases his outstanding versatility with gospel choirs in Mankindou Monster, stylish jazz in You Can’t Hide Away From Love, the funky Usher elevated by Tom Richards’ tenor saxophone, or adorned pop in Life Is Grey. This album’s main strength is its perfect balance, achieved through a lush yet never overcrowded orchestration of strings, winds, Hammond organ, and above all vocals – especially Cullum’s with his incredible range, but also female choirs. Perfect. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Album Description

Eight albums already! About to turn forty, this gifted Englishman is back with Taller. The singer-songwriter from Essex relies on his faithful arranger and multi-instrumentalist Troy Miller to produce an opus that’s as concise as it is eclectic, clocking in at less than 40 minutes in length. In it, Cullum questions the responsibility of a father and an artist in our modern society. “Are you a man before your father dies?” / “But what’s a man these days? I hear you cry” / “And are we raising up our children right” on the piano/vocal song The Age Of Anxiety. The British artist showcases his outstanding versatility with gospel choirs in Mankindou Monster, stylish jazz in You Can’t Hide Away From Love, the funky Usher elevated by Tom Richards’ tenor saxophone, or adorned pop in Life Is Grey. This album’s main strength is its perfect balance, achieved through a lush yet never overcrowded orchestration of strings, winds, Hammond organ, and above all vocals – especially Cullum’s with his incredible range, but also female choirs. Perfect. © Charlotte Saintoin/Qobuz

Betty Davis, The Funk Panther

Without her, there would be no Macy Gray, Erykah Badu, Amy Winehouse or Janelle Monáe! Gone to heaven, Betty Davis remains the pioneer of feline soul sisters. The funk goddess par excellence. She was also one of the leading ladies in a certain Miles Davis' life, whose wife she would be for a short time. But who really were you Betty?

The Struggles of Nina Simone

Although today she is seen as one of the most original voices in jazz and soul, Nina Simone's life was anything but a smooth and gentle climb to the top. The woman who dreamed of being the first black American classical pianist had to struggle against others, against her own family, and even against herself.

Chris Connor, a Forgotten Voice

What if she really was the greatest cool jazz singer of them all? Almost twelve years after she passed away, Chris Connor remains one of the most sensual voices of her generation. After all, there's more to life than Anita O'Day and June Christy...
