James Morrison Is Preparing His A-Z of Jazz Setlist for Twilight At Taronga

Jazz legend James Morrison is working on a History of Jazz show when he performs at Twilight At Taronga at Taronga Zoo in February.

James tells Noise11.com that it hasn’t been easy culling the setlist into a show. “This one particularly is quite difficult,” he says.

“It is the A-Z of Jazz, a chronological walk-through with the A standing for Armstrong and the Z standing for Zawinul, Joe Zawinul. He was the great funk, keyboard player. Everything inbetween is deciding what to put in. If you are going to go through jazz and hit the highlights there are so many. To get it into one show and not leave too many gaps, and keep it so it flows like a great entertaining show … I am in the throws of trying to put together the setlist. I’ve got to do some Be-Bop, I’ve got to do some Latin Jazz. Its more a case of what to leave out rather than what to put in. I’m going through that at the moment. I start with a list of everything I want to do. That’s a six hour show. Now start culling”.

James Morrison will perform the A-Z of Jazz for Twilight At Taronga on February 26, 2023.
