Jamie Cullum at The White House
17 May 2016, Posted in: Show news

Some of the biggest names in jazz gathered at the White House in Washington recently for International Jazz Day, and Jamie Cullum spoke to them for his BBC Radio 2 show.

Jamie was performing at the concert, hosted by President Barack Obama and his wife Michelle, and took along his microphone to capture some of his fellow musicians. 

At one point during rehearsals, part of the White House was evacuated because of a suspect bag, and Jamie took that opportunity to record interviews with Herbie Hancock, Chick Corea, Robert Glasper, Kurt Elling, Esperanza Spalding and legendary bassist Marcus Miller!

They will all feature, along with their music, on his show on 24th May from 7pm.
