The James Morrison Sextet ft. Mat Jodrell and Carl Mackey – Friday, 15th of December 2023:
Join us for an evening of jazz with multi-instrumentalist James Morrison.
Performing over two huge nights, this intimate concert is an exceptional opportunity to experience one of Australia’s most talented and versatile jazz musicians, with a brand new group featuring Mat Jodrell (trumpet) and Carl Mackey (alto sax) performing for the first time here in Sydney!
Renowned globally as one of the finest jazz players of his generation, James Morrison is not only a trumpet virtuoso, but a complete showman.
James started playing professionally at age 13 and has a stellar professional career behind him: he has performed alongside the best jazz musicians of our generation and has had the privilege of performing for the President and First Lady of the United States.
Known throughout the world for his sheer brilliance as a jazz musician, educator, and all-round entertainer, James is also the founder of the James Morrison Academy of Music in Mount Gambier, he is constantly on the move, performing wherever fine music has an audience.
Ray Brown called him ’The Genius’ but Wynton Marsalis said it best: “Man, James Morrison can play!”
When asked about his extraordinary career, James declared, ‘This is just the warm-up!’.
Grab your family and friends and prepare to be blown away!
