Celebration of Ella & Louis with Waso Big Band Horns
Legendary Grammy award-winning vocalist Patti Austin and Australia’s own trumpet maestro James Morrison come together with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra’s Big Band Horns, to perform timeless hits from the Great American Songbook of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong.
Jazz royalty will be celebrated in one special evening. Walk down memory lane with Ella Fitzgerald’s famous How High The Moon and A Tisket A Tasket, performed by the beautiful vocals of Patti Austin. The stage will be shared with James Morrison as he pays tribute to innovator and ambassador of jazz, Louis Armstrong. The pair reunite after their last performance together at the Montreux Jazz Festival with Quincy Jones.
This year marks the centennial of the First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald’s birth. This is an exciting opportunity to enjoy two of the biggest international jazz stars on the one stage, paying homage to the great musicians of the 1950’s Jazz scene.
See the next generation of Morrison talent, as sons Harry Morrison on the bass and William Morrison on the Guitar, join their father for this not to be missed performance.
