In 2018, we're pleased to welcome back one of Twilight at Taronga's long-standing favourites, James Morrison.
Known throughout the world for his sheer brilliance as a jazz musician and an all round entertainer, Ray Brown called him "The Genius" but Wynton Marsalis said it best: "Man, James Morrison can play!".
Bursting onto the international stage at age 16, James performed at Europe's major festivals and has played with many legends of jazz including Dizzy Gillespie, Cab Calloway, Woody Shaw, Red Rodney, George Benson, Ray Charles, B.B. King, Ray Brown and Wynton Marsalis. James has also played gigs in the world's most famous jazz clubs - The Blue Note, Village Vanguard and Dizzy's in New York, the New Morning in Paris, The Tokyo Blue Note and Ronnie Scott's in London.
James Morrison's career hasn't been typical of most jazz musicians. He recorded Jazz Meets the Symphony with the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Lalo Schifrin, and has performed concerts at the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and Royal Command Performances on two occasions for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. James has also been invited to perform for US Presidents Bush, Clinton and Obama.
James has guested with many great artists as diverse as jazz superstars Herbie Hancock and Quincy Jones and rock legends INXS. In 2000, James composed and performed the fanfare for the Olympic Games Opening Ceremony in Sydney.
When asked "What is there left to do?" James's typical reply is "This is just the warm up!".
