James Morrison and Co-op Funeralcare in Concert

Australian jazz musician James Morrison will be with us very soon!

Make sure you get your tickets to hear the "Wonder from Down Under" - you will literally be blown away when you hear him play. Ray Brown called him "The Genius and Dizzy Gillespie called him "One of The Best", but Wynton Marsalis summed it up: "Man, James Morrison can play!" 

The multi-instrumentalist will take to the stage in Perth Concert Hall on Sunday, November 20, where he will be joined by his Jazz Trio along with the Band with conductors, Allan Ramsay and Nigel Boddice MBE.

Morrison will be the star of the show, which begins at 7pm, with lengthy stints in both halves of the evening. He will be accompanied by the band and is also bringing along some of his friends from the jazz world to join him for his first visit to Scotland in 20 years.

James Morrison’s appearance alongside the band is a rarity that is not to be missed. The visit is no coincidence; in fact, it was down to the tenacity of the band’s conductor and former principal cornet player Allan Ramsay, who managed to persuade him to visit Scotland while in the UK for his guest appearance with the Black Dyke Band at Brass in Concert.

Allan reminded James that last time he was in Scotland he borrowed Allan's flugelhorn, so owed him a favour!

Lovers of traditional brass band repertoire will be able to enjoy Peter Graham’s The Triumph of Time, the test piece at the 2016 British Open Championships at Symphony Hall, Birmingham. The piece returns to the hall where it was premiered after being commissioned by the Black Dyke Band for use at the European Championships in Perth in 2014.

The band will reprise items from its winning performance at the Land O’ Burns entertainment contest in Troon including Sandy Smith’s arrangement of Mark Taylor’s Los Hermanos de Bop, a big band tour de force from a man who spent 24 years as the chief arranger for the United States Army Band (also known as Pershing’s Own), and Blue, made famous by Austrian brass septet Mnozil Brass.
