Very pleased to announce that James Morrison’s album ‘A to Z of Jazz’ has been awarded the 2015 Bell Award for the best traditional album. This album was recorded live on our very first performance in Melbourne with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra, led by Ben Northey. The rhythm section was Doug DeVries (guitar), Ben Robertson (bass) and David Jones (drums) and the album is the entire concert, live at Hamer Hall!
A great achievement and some very worthy entrants and finalists in this category, as there are every year! So a big congratulations to James and I’m thrilled to have been a part of this show!
