The James Morrison Academy Honours Ensemble is the premier small ensemble from the James Morrison Academy in Mount Gambier, SA. The band consists of Honours students Bernard Alexander (saxophones), Matthew Nicholls (trumpet), Scott van Gemert (trombone), and James Owen (drums) with special guest Harry Morrison (double bass). They play a variety of original material and arrangements of music by composers ranging from Thelonious Monk to Sidney Bechet, and everything in between. Earlier this year the ensemble travelled to the USA where they worked with students and staff at the Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz in LA, and the Juilliard School in New York. Don't miss this chance to hear the James Morrison Academy Honours Ensemble on their Australian tour!
