It is with great pleasure that in association with the Cavell Leitch New Zealand International Jazz & Blues Festival the CSO welcomes back to Christchurch, Jazz Legend, James Morrison.
James Morrison’s critically acclaimed A to Z of Jazz is a journey through the history of jazz with a snapshot of some of its most important people and moments. Featuring music from the greats including Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Miles Davis, you’ll be taken from Dixieland to Bebop, Blues to Birdland. Besides the trumpet, this virtuoso multi-instrumentalist also plays trombone, euphonium, flugel horn, tuba, double bass and piano. Joining Morrison for this performance is Melbourne based vocalist, Hetty Kate, a rising star on the international jazz scene. Add in the orchestra and this will be Jazz on the grandest of scales.
