According to the festival “Rīgas Ritmi”, the iconic jazz trumpeter James Morrison has agreed to hold a master class for jazz artists and his fans in Latvia. The master class will be on the 27th of November, 11 a.m., in the historic Studio One of the Latvian Radio (Doma laukums 8).

During the master class, James Morrison will talk about music, musical instruments – including his futuristic trumpet – and the world of art, in terms of business and academic practices, having established his own music academy earlier this year that involves such prominent guest lecturers as Stevie Wonder, etc. Demonstrations and taking questions will be important part of the master class.

Here we need to remind our readers that the Latvian Radio Big Band and James Morrison will perform together at the Riga Congress Centre on the 28th of November at 7 p.m. with the unique programme “Mare Balticum”, a project supported by “Riga 2014”.

James Morrison plays a variety of instruments, including the trombone, flugelhorn, saxophone, piano and double-bass, yet he is best known as a jazz trumpet player. He has performed with the London Symphony Orchestra and also performed special concerts for Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. In 1997, he was appointed a member of the Order of Australia for service to music. In 2013, Morrison conducted the world’s biggest orchestra, consisting of 7,224 people.

“James Morrison is a musical phenomenon, of that there is not the slightest doubt. The heights that even the most talented of musicians work hard to achieve, he achieves through doing what comes naturally. To James Morrison, playing a musical instrument is as natural as walking and breathing, he just does it,” writes the portal Britishtrombonesociety.

Tickets to James Morrison’s concert are available from “Biļešu serviss” outlets and online shop
