Nice relaxed conversation between Jamie and Sir Paul in this interview on the programme last night

This week, Jamie meets Sir Paul McCartney for a special, in-depth interview about the musician's love of jazz.

The two 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 they approached their compositions.

He then talks about his current album of jazz standards and original compositions, Kisses On The Bottom, and explains the way it came together, from initial inspiration to collaborations with Eric Clapton and Stevie Wonder.

Thanks for the reminder Becky! I started listening to Jamie then got sidetracked doing something else away from the radio. Next time I looked at the clock it was over. Sad

Being a fan, Helen, I know I'm biased but I found it a really nice listen...the time just whizzed by.

I really like listening to Paul being interviewed, he seems so lovely and takes his time to answer questions properly.
I don't usually hear Jamie Cullum as I'm not really into jazz but this was really nice to listen to.
