James Morrison & Big Band @ Melbourne Town Hall

James Morrison & Big Band
Description:

It Don't Mean a Thing If It Ain't Got that Swing! Step back in time for a toe-tapping and finger-snapping musical treat with trumpet maestro James Morrison and Big Band as they bring to life all those big band swing classics in one very special night in the grandeur of Melbourne’s Town Hall.

Re-live the fabulous swing numbers made famous by Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie and Charlie Parker and enjoy a rare celebration of the golden era of swing at this stunning venue.

Joining James on stage will be Ross Irwin Invitational All Star Big Band, boasting some of the best young big band musos in the country, the legendary Don Burrows and American trombone player Wycliffe Gordon, best known for his work with the Lincoln Centre Jazz orchestra under the direction of jazz maestro Wynton Marsalis.

If you’ve heard James Morrison with a small band and fallen for his musical magic, imagine that superb sound with twice the trumpets and trombones, three times the saxophones, incredible guest musicians and James trumpeting away in the lead like a man possessed!

You’ll be in the mood from the first note, swinging along to these popular big band numbers. So come join the party and prepare to be blown away! Book now to be part of this special celebration of swing - tickets will sell fast!
