Featuring Mat Jodrell & Carl Mackey
No matter how familiar you may be with James Morrison, you haven't heard him play until you've heard him with this group. It is a testament to their energy and sheer brilliance that James says his favourite way to play is with his Sextet - this coming from a man who has played with many of the greats of jazz, including Quincy Jones, Dizzy Gillespie, Herbie Hancock, Ray Brown, Wynton Marsalis and more.
What makes the Sextet so special is the joy they create when they perform. James says, "This is what can happen when you have four musicians who all have a will to swing and are of one mind when it comes to the reason they play".
"Patrick is one of the most exciting drummers on the scene today - inventive, virtuosic, and always so musical. Harry is a powerhouse on the bass, reminiscent of the Ray Brown approach, swing at all costs - his energy underpins everything the band does. William not only plays beautiful classic jazz guitar but also writes much of the original material performed by the group and this compositional aspect is always present in his playing".
With his three colleagues covering guitar, bass and drums, James plays anything from trombone, flugelhorn and saxophones to piano, and of course the trumpet.
If you love jazz that swings and music that makes you smile, don't miss the James Morrison Sextet.
