ABC Jazz is proud to present the final album from one of Australia’s greatest musicians, Don Burrows, playing with his finest pupil, the legendary James Morrison.
In Good Company – released here for the first time – documents an afternoon in the studio with Don and James, and represents a golden opportunity to witness these two brilliant musicians ‘jamming together’. In typically virtuosic style, they each play three instruments (Don on alto flute, clarinet and alto saxophone, James on trombone, bass trumpet and trumpet), accompanied by Phil Stack on acoustic bass. The recording showcases the intimacy of their duet, and the musical wit and invention that has seen them become two of the world’s most celebrated musicians over the past decades.
Don Burrows has performed with luminaries including Stéphane Grapelli, Dizzy Gillespie, Frank Sinatra, Nat ‘King’ Cole, Oscar Peterson and many more. He was the first Australian jazz artist to reach Gold record status, and for six years during the 1980s he fronted The Don Burrows Collection on ABC TV. It was while he was teaching at the NSW Conservatorium of Music that he discovered the young virtuoso James Morrison, immediately including James in his band and kick-starting the career of the man who has taken on Don’s mantle as Australia’s most loved, renowned and dynamic jazz musician. The pair remain deeply close to this day: Don is a part of the Morrison family, so much so that James’ children refer to him as ‘GranDon’!
