    First new solo album for four years from the young jazz maverick.

    There's a swaggering big-band reading of "Just One Of Those Things" and a clever soul-jazz recasting of Rhianna's "Don't Stop The Music", but otherwise Cullum has morphed into a kind of Britpop Randy Newman, which suits him well on the excellent "I'm All Over It". [Dec 2009, p. 87]
  3. Jazz maestro takes a turn towards the electro.

However I'm sure that this album seems enough to satisfy for people who likes jazz because songs in this album perform their own rhythm by Jamie's band and his voice. I recommend this album to someone who listen jazz at first because it is not heavy or origin of jazz, so you can listen comfortably. Full Review »
