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.

Snappy do and snappy 2 are both very good 17 piece band music recorded in stereo for anyone that cares now a days. Very good separation by the way this Morrison is a bald man from AU. Not the other hairy singer

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.
