Character Bio

James Morrison (2009) photo
James Morrison is, by anybody’s standards, a virtuoso in the true sense of the word. Besides the trumpet, this multi-instrumentalist also plays trombone, euphonium, flugel horn, tuba, saxophones, and piano.

At the age of seven, he was given his first instrument, at nine he formed his first band and at thirteen he was playing professionally in nightclubs. His international career developed equally as fast. James Morrison debuted in the USA with a breathtaking concert at the Monterey Jazz Festival when he had just turned 16. Following this were performances at the big festivals in Europe playing with many of the legends of jazz.

Now 47, James Morrison’s career thus far has been diverse and perhaps not typical of most jazz musicians. He has played with orchestras around the world and performed for Royalty as well as political heavyweights. In 1997, James was recognised for his service to the arts in Australia and awarded The Order of Australia medal.

Apart from touring the world for most of the year James is also head of Morrison Records, an independent label dedicated to the best of jazz. He also spends much time in education, doing master classes and workshops in many countries and running a jazz scholarship.

When not writing film scores, composing or being patron of several youth orchestras, James relaxes in some fairly unconventional ways for a musician - competing in triathlons, abseiling, flying his private plane or driving in a rally championship. His love of cars is well known, as he was host of the national TV program “Behind the Wheel”, professes to owning 96 cars and met his wife during a celebrity car race.

James proved he has what it takes to join the Top Gear Australia team during his spin around the track as a Star in a Bog Standard Car in episode six of series one.
