The brilliant James Morrison will be making a rare appearance in Scotland later this month — so don't miss him in action in Perth.

James Morrison
  The Wizard of Oz will be heading to Perth later this month

Jazz virtuoso James Morrison's visit to the UK is almost upon us. Not only will he showcasing his talents at the Brass in Concert Championship, but he is also visiting Scotland.

The 'Wizard of Oz' will be making his trip north of Hadrian's Wall for twenty years, so his appearance at Perth Concert Hall alongside the Co-operative Funeralcare Band on Sunday November 20th (7.00pm) is not to be missed.

Star of the show

A Band spokesperson told 4BR: "The concert ace will have something for everyone. James will of course be the star of the show, with lengthy stints in both halves of the evening, accompanied by the band — though he may bring along some of his friends from the jazz world!"

Easy listening

The Scottish champion will also provide substantial musical features, with Peter Graham's 'The Triumph of Time' conducted by Nigel Boddice MBE alongside easy listener entertainment items from their memorable winning performance at the Land O' Burns entertainment contest such as Mark Taylor's 'Los Hermanos de Bop', and 'Blue', made famous by Austrian brass septet Mnozil Brass.

It is envisaged that James Morrison, may well make a cameo appearance or two in the trumpet section!
