Trumpet legend James Morrison is teaming up with WASO for a very special concert event celebrating The Great American Songbook on Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th August 2018. Tickets are now on sale.

Held at Perth Concert Hall, Morrison will be joined by his sons William and Harry, alongside a white hot jazz ensemble and WASO. Together they will perform a stellar repertoire showcasing the great American jazz classics.

Enjoy a sweeping musical journey that will get your toes tapping and your heart pumping! Some of the all-time jazz favourites will be performed including 'My Funny Valentine', 'Every Time We Say Goodbye', 'Summertime', 'A Foggy Day', 'It Don't Mean a Thing if it Ain't Got That Swing' and a few surprises along the way.

This exciting concert follows the release of Morrison's latest acclaimed album The Great American Songbook, which was recorded at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London. Critics and fans praised Morrison for reviving the melodies, styles and meaning that have made these songs timeless. This is your first chance to experience the album performed live in Australia.

Tickets are now on sale and priced from $49. Secure your tickets today at tickets.waso.com.au
