Jamie Cullum plays ‘Losing You’, the title track from the full album out now on Impossible Ark Records:
‘What a superb track that is… It’s a really interesting record, more of a Rhythm and Blues, country-blues influence, as well as the jazz in there on this whole album. Beautifully produced, it’s a wonderful sounding record, it has some real eclectic moments on it… A really great step forward for Sara and I highly recommend you listen to the whole album.’ Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2, 30/06/15.

“A wonderful UK singer who really has a very individual sound and a great choice of repertoire as well… I’ve been playing her on the show a lot, (I) really love her versions of standards and her original tunes as well. The music she has been creating with Nostalgia 77 over the past few years is some of my favourite British vocal jazz of recent times” Jamie Cullum, BBC Radio 2
