Jamie Cullum performes live during the Barcelona Jazz Festival

JAMIE CULLUM BRINGS JAZZ TO THE WORLD

As the curator of jazz sessions for St. Regis, jazz-pop singer-songwriter Jamie Cullum is creating a series of intimate yet electric performances, giving his own unique take on the genre and bringing it alive for a new global audience

Not every singer-songwriter has his own mobile jazz festival. British jazz superstar Jamie Cullum led the Jazz Legends series in New York last year, announcing the performance as the first leg of his new international residency, alongside Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig from fashion label Marchesa, and celebrated polo player Nacho Figueras, as a St. Regis Connoisseur.

Swapping Ronnie Scott’s in London and the Blue Note in New York for a run of intimate gigs in St. Regis locations around the world, Cullum started his exclusive tour at the rooftop ballroom of the St. Regis New York, itself a landmark of jazz history that has played host to the likes of Count Basie, Duke Ellington and Buddy Rich.

‘Jazz is woven into the fabric of our culture, ever evolving throughout history: respecting tradition, but also reinterpreting it,’ says Cullum, now the most successful UK jazz artist in history, with more than 10 million albums sold. ‘I am honored to work with St. Regis to evolve their soundtrack, following in the footsteps of some of the finest musicians of all time who performed at the original St. Regis on 55th and Fifth.’

Continuing his live marquee event tour at the St. Regis Singapore (May 13) and the St. Regis Osaka (May 16) after recent stops in Macau and Mumbai, Cullum is also curating music for the public spaces of all St. Regis hotels and resorts globally—hand-picking artists who complement his own unique blend of blue-eyed soul and crossover jazz, as well as paying homage to the hotel’s New York legacy.
