Jamie Cullum plays an hour of jazz music ranging from its heritage to its future. This week, Jamie chats to seminal jazz vocalist Mark Murphy, who has been embraced in musical realms such as acid jazz and modern dance music. They speak about Mark's upbringing in a family of singers and how he was first turned on to jazz through the music of Art Tatum.

As one of the most inventive lyricists of instrumental standards, the pair discuss Mark's process for putting lyrics to songs.
