The legendary James Morrison, accompanied by his talented band will blow you away with an unforgettable and feel-good Motown party experience.
This feel-good evening will get you on your feet and includes four soulful voices, a pumping rhythm section and some smouldering horns lead by the incomparable James Morrison. James is, by anybody’s standard, a virtuoso in the true sense of the word. Besides the trumpet, this multi-instrumentalist also plays piano, all the brass, saxophones, and double bass.
At the age of six he started on piano, at seven he took up brass, at nine he formed his first band and at thirteen he was playing professionally in nightclubs. Now 59, James Morrison’s career has included much more than just jazz…He has recorded with The London Symphony Orchestra, rock legends INXS and the European Brass Ensemble, performed at the Royal Albert Hall for the BBC Proms, written the opening fanfare for the Olympic Games, played Royal Command performances for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and for US Presidents Bush and Clinton.
In a recording career spanning 3 decades, James has released a huge variety of albums from gospel to big band to electronic fusion. With interests so broad and a career so filled with highlights it seems that James Morrison must have done just about everything he could want to do – but not so…When asked, “What is there left to do?” James’ reply is typically “This is just the warm up!”
