As the Australian summer days were starting in December ’18 James Morrison hopped on a flight to New York, landing during one of the most brutal winters to hit NY for many years. There he joined friend and fellow jazz legend Kurt Elling for four nights of live music magic at the infamous New York jazz venue Birdland.

The band comprised Elling’s long-time side men Stu Mindeman on piano, Clark Sommers on bass & Ulysses Owens Jr on drums. Joining them was NY based Australian expat saxophonist Troy Roberts.

The set included some well-loved favorites including Bennys From Heaven”, Going To Chicago”, September In The Rain”, I Was Telling Her About You”, Save Your Love For MeandNature Boy”.

Thankfully those songs and those nights at Birdland were captured in a recording that will now be released worldwide as the new album ‘Kurt Elling & James Morrison – Live In New York’.
