Description:

One of the Basement's most loved performers is set to grace our stage and spread some Christmas cheer! He will be joined by Konrad Paszkudzki and Jeff Clayton from the USA! James Morrison's contributions to Australian jazz are innumerable. His clout as a multi-instrumentalist performer is evidenced in his recordings and performances around the world - from the great festivals of Montreaux, Pori, North Sea, Nice and Bern, to the Royal Albert hall with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and at the Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, to the iconic clubs of New York, Paris and London, The Blue Note, Village Vanguard, The New Morning and Ronnie Scotts. He has played with luminaries such as Dizzy Gillespie, Cab Calloway, Woody Shaw, Red Rodney, George Benson, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Ray Brown and Wynton Marsalis, entertained the last two US presidents and featured in two Royal Command performances for Queen Elizabeth II. Awarded the Order of Australia in 1997 for services to the arts at a youthful 36, Morrison is now undoubtedly one of Australia's greatest musical exports and cultural diplomats. His work as an educator and patron of the arts, along with his innate grasp of rapidly developing technologies have made him one of the most relevant teachers and producers today. It is hard to imagine that James Morrison could get any better, but it seems with each time he hits The Basement stage, he raises the bar even higher and effortlessly sails over. He is, by any standard, a virtuoso in the true sense of the word. Besides the trumpet, this multi-instrumentalist also plays trombone, euphonium, flugel horn, tuba, saxophones and piano. He is a Jazz Jack of all Trades and most definitely Master of them All.
