For this festive gift, the Brit has made the wise decision to not record a cover of Santa Claus is Coming to Town or Jingle Bells for the 6549th time.
In addition to being a brilliant entertainer and fiery pianist, Cullum is also an increasingly interesting composer (check out his very personal album Taller released in 2019). Pianoman at Christmas is much less trivial than you might expect. 2020 has been a difficult year and his writing is enriched by these circumstances. And it’s great!
He unveils a river of violins, brass-filled cocktails and swaying percussion. His eclectic music is carried by a talented big band and ranges from easy listening to Latin jazz and groovy pop, with just the right amount of vintage accents typical of Christmas albums. Delicious!
