2004 Twentysomething by Jamie Cullum

Jamie Cullum is an exciting young British jazz-pop pianist and singer. He does old standards as well as his own songs. In the summer of 2006, my son and I saw Cullum perform at the Calvin Theater in Northamption, Massachusetts. If you ever get a chance to see him live, I highly recommend it. He does a very energetic show pounding on the piano and bounding across the stage. At the end of the Northampton show, he had been joined on stage by a about twenty audience members who danced in a crowd around his piano.

Cullum is most famous for "All at Sea," which was released as a single and got considerable air play in the US and Europe. Embedding of the official music video has been disabled, so here is a good live performance:
