Progress association to hold Jazz in the Arboretum
The Pearl Beach Progress Association and the Crommelin Native Arboretum Committee will host Jazz in the Arboretum featuring John Morrison and his All Stars on October 6.
Brother of big band leader James Morrison, for 25 years he has "presented jazz of the highest calibre and always given audiences the music they just keep coming back for", said Association communications officer Ms Lynne Lillico.
The All Stars is made up of guitarist Steve Smillie, his wife trumpeter Kathy Morrison, John's wife singer Jackie Cooper, pianist Bill Risby and bass player Natalie Risby.
"The All Stars will be performing an eclectic selection of jazz including standards from the following swinging selections: Sunny Side of the Street, Pennies from Heaven, Nature Boy, Walk of the Wild Side, plus a mix of standards and originals with a smoky tropical flavour," Ms Lillico said.
Also playing will be the Australian Institute of Music's Studio Youth Orchestra.
"In 2016 John was made a fellow of the Australian Institute of Music for his services to the music industry and in 2017 John began an ambassadorship position at the Institute.
"In 2018 John provided workshops for more than 22,000 students from all over Australia in his first year at the Institute."
