  • Jamie Cullum tipped too heavily toward coffeehouse electronica on his fourth album, Catching Tales, obscuring his charms as both a jazzy pianist and a soft rock crooner, so he wisely scales back to his strengths on The Pursuit. Despite a brassy opening cover of Cole Porter's "Just One of Those Things," The Pursuit is hardly a retreat to Harry Connick, Jr. territory. Cullum anchors himself within melodic soft rock, providing a base for incorporating both his jazz and persistent electronica infatuations. Since The Pursuit is produced as a pop album, those electronica flourishes wind up seeming seamless, underscoring what Cullum does best: unabashedly mainstream adult pop, whether it's the insistent rush of "Mixtape" or the wonderful `70s throwback "I'm All Over It." Much of The Pursuit mines this fertilely mellow vein, producing a bunch of understatedly melodic music whose consistency suggests that Cullum realizes his strength as a soft rock singer/songwriter. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Professional Reviews
Entertainment Weekly (p.69) - "[T]hink Ben Folds' brand of guitarless, percussive piano rock, with an occasional house beat thrown in."

Down Beat (p.48) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he infectiousness of 'I'm All Over It' is obvious -- an Elton John homage that Ben Folds or Keene would be proud to call their own."

Billboard - "THE PURSUIT is his first collection of songs to capture his energy-filled live shows on record....He steps effortlessly among jazz, dance and intimate singer/songwriter fare."

Q (Magazine) (p.111) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "[S]tomping piano pop hits, supper-club R&B and finger-clickin' ruminations on the state of the planet..."
