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.
