Listen again to Jamie Cullum’s interview with Sir Paul McCartney on his BBC Radio 2 show, broadcast last night.You can listen on BBC iPlayer till Tuesday 14th February.
In this clip from the show Paul McCartney talks to Jamie about his musical tastes when rock ‘n’ roll hit in the 50s. He explains that at the time, his love was for the older jazz classics such as Cole Porter and Harold Arlen, and when he met John Lennon, they both realised they shared a mutual love for this music.
Here is a preview of a special in-depth interview with Sir Paul McCartney, which will be on Jamie Cullum’s show next week. It will be broadcast on BBC Radio 2 on Tuesday 7th February at 7pm.
The two musicians discuss the role jazz has played in Sir Paul’s life, from growing up listening to his father’s jazz band to their mutual love of Fats Waller. Sir Paul reflects on his days with The Beatles, and how jazz subtly informed the way The Beatles approached their composition. He then talks in-depth with Jamie about his current album of jazz standards and original compositions, ‘Kisses On The Bottom’, and explains the way it came together, from the initial inspiration to the great collaborations.
Below is a video of Jamie Cullum in conversation with Jo Wiley at the second year of BBC Introducing’s Masterclass, which supports unsigned and un-discovered artists by giving them access to, and insights from high profile musicians and industry professionals.
