"Gran Torino" and Cullum get Golden Globe Nom

Jamie Cullum proves yet again just how good he and the rest of the British brigade's (Amy Winehouse, Duffy, Adele, etc.) return to classically-influenced jazz and soul are after receiving a Golden Globe nomination in the Best Original Song category for the Clint Eastwood film "Gran Torino" with a track of the same name. The soulfulness of his voice deserves all the recognition that it gets and "Torino" does an excellent job showcasing his vocals and building to a powerful climax (thats what she said). You can find the song on his myspace page right here. Cullum of course came to U.S. mainstream fame earlier this decade with the hit "All At Sea" and has since proven his talent with his excellent live performances.
