James Morrison

If you know me at all, you would know I am an old soul at heart. All year long I have been talking to E about trying to see James Morrison with the Wester Australian Symphony Orchestra. While browsing for events to attend James Morrison again posed up in my feed and I just made the decision to book for us to see him.

A somewhat long concert was well worth it seeing we kind of got an education session on Jazz through the years. 

The songs he played were:
  1. Basin Street Blue - Louis Armstrong 1928
  2. The birth of the Blues - Whispering Jack Smith 1927
  3. Seven Come Elven - Benny Goodman, Charlie Christian, Lionel Hampton 1934
  4. Stardust - Hoagy Carmichael 1927
  5. Honeysuckle Rose - Fats Waller 1934
  6. Don't Get Around Much Anymore - Duke Ellington 1940
  7. Mood Indigo - Duke Ellington 1930
  8. Lil' Daling' - Count Basie 1958
  9. El Gato - Duke Ellington 1958
  10. A Night in Tunisia - Dizzy Gillespie and Sarah Vaughan 1944
  11. Cherokee - Charlie Parker 1945
  12. All Blues - Miles Davis 1959
  13. 'Round Midnight - Miles Davis 1957
  14. Manteca - Dizzy Gillespie 1954
  15. Desafinado - Stan Getz, Joao Gilberto and Charlie Byrd 1962
  16. Chameleon - Herbie Hancock 1973
  17. Birdland - Weather Report 1977
I realised I prefer the earlier Jazz years. Its got a dancing in the kitchen kind of mood too it, which will make me very happy to keep listening to it.  Thinking now about just how much I love the music makes me happy.
