For New Year’s Eve we’re bringing you a special concert in which Australian multi-instrumentalist James Morrison joins with the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra to present a potted history of jazz, Blues to Bebop. From ‘Basin Street Blues’ through the swing of Benny Goodman and Duke Ellington to the bebop of Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis and on to the jazz fusion of Herbie Hancock and Weather Report.

Recorded in the Auckland Town Hall by RNZ Concert
