5.0 out of 5 stars Takes "one-man band" to a whole new level August 27, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a truly remarkable display of talent by a multi-instrumentalist who was just in his late-20s when it was recorded in late 1989. Australian James Morrison performs in settings ranging from quartet (five tracks) to brass ensemble (four tracks) to big band (two tracks) - and every instrument you hear is him, except for guitar, bass, and drums. For those duties, Morrison enlisted top-notch players Herb Ellis on guitar, Ray Brown on bass, and Jeff Hamilton on drums.
The concept of such an album might seem like a self-indulgent stunt that wouldn't have wide appeal, but it works on all levels - great arrangements (most of which Morrison wrote), great ensemble playing, and fabulous solos. As a trumpeter and trombonist, Morrison has it all: range, power, speed, and superb improvisational ability. He's even a respectable saxophonist. His sax solos (tenor on "Le Belleclaire Blues" and alto on "The Shadow of Your Smile") are decidedly less adventurous than his brass solos, but he does a nice job and displays a mature sound. There's a piano solo too, on the gospel tune "Old Rugged Cross," which also features a trumpet solo along with his one-man brass ensemble.
This is an artist that all jazz fans should become familiar with, and this album is an excellent way to sample his many talents. Keep your eyes open for the many albums he's appeared on since this one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! February 12, 2012

What a talented performer. The ensemble is very tight due to James playing almost every thing himself. it is almost impossible to think that one person can be so talented. This is must have for everyone's library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recomendo September 2, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Falando em Wynton lembrei do Morrison, James Morrison. Um australiano que hoje conta com 44 anos e dá uma surra de espontaneidade, alegria e swing no azulão do Lincoln Center. Quem diria, um branco azedo fazendo o que o Wynton deveria estar fazendo ...

Com a academização do jazz, com aulas regulares sobre improviso e regras sobre liberdade, as universidades norte-americanas estão conseguindo destruir aquilo que mais me atrai no jazz: o chute no balde das concepções acadêmicas. Tem coisa mais chata que jazz arrumadinho ?

Bem, fica a dica do grande trompetista australiano, um virtuose do instrumento que toca com alegria e ainda se aventura no trombone, sax alto e barítono e piano, sem medo de ser feliz.
