Song of the Week: Photograph

The first time I remember hearing about singer/songwriter/pianist Jamie Cullum was a couple years ago on CBS's Sunday Morning show. They interviewed Cullum and played clips from several recent concerts. The song that made me sit up and listen was his cover of Jimi Hendrix's "The Wind Cries Mary" (Cullum's version can be heard here). If I have to say one thing about him, it's he's talented. If I can say two things, it's that he's hard to classify. His music is sort of a fusion of jazz, pop, soul, and occasionally mixes in hip hop beats.

This week, the song was a toss up between "London Skies" (which was in my head for a couple days) and "Photograph". Both are off Cullum's 2005 album Catching Tales.
