James Morrison’s journey through Jazz

Brett Kelly Conductor
James Morrison Trumpet
Hetty Kate Vocals

Take a trip through the history of jazz in the company of Australia’s master of the medium, James Morrison.

An astounding multi-instrumentalist, James plays no fewer than ten instruments, including trumpet, trombone, saxophone, piano and ‘keytar’ (and more – but you’ll have to come to the concert to find out which!). James is your guide on this panoramic survey of syncopation, taking you on a journey from the birth of the blues, to Dixieland, to bebop, to Birdland. It’s a trip through its most important songs, people and moments.

For James Morrison, this is his personal selection of some of jazz’s highlights. For aficionados, this concert is a chance to re-experience some of the most famous charts and composers who have shaped the genre. For those who don’t know jazz very well, it’s a terrific introduction, with some of the greatest and best loved songs in jazz’s history.

As well as the APO and conductor Brett Kelly, James is joined by vocalist Hetty Kate and a rhythm section that includes his sons, who are talented instrumentalists in their own right. It’s a sensational display of virtuosity which you just won’t want to miss.
