57 minutes
First broadcast:

Jamie Cullum plays an hour of jazz music ranging from its heritage to its future.

This week, Jamie returns to the BBC Archives to dig out a session from the Jazz Ship; a seven-day cruise in which passengers listen to jazz all day. Singer Joe Williams is on board this session as the boat returns home to New York, performing Evil Man Blues.

Previous archive sessions on the show have included performances by Cleo Laine, Thelonious Monk and George Benson.
