James Morrison is arguably the most recognisable face in Australian music, with an instrumental prowess that includes trumpet, trombone, saxophone, tuba, piano and double bass.
With perfectly pure voices and harmonies that flow like molasses, The Idea Of North have performed at the AFL Grand Final and on the highest-rating television show in recent history.
They’ve been friends and musical collaborators for years, but until now James Morrison and The Idea of North have never made an album together.
All that changed when the legendary trumpeter and Australia’s most popular jazz-vocal quartet joined forces late in 2009 to record Feels Like Spring, a vibrant collection of standards and original tunes that will blast away the autumn blues.
Recorded during inspired sessions at Morrison’s own studio on Sydney’s Northern Beaches, Feels Like Spring has a nostalgic feel, like you’re watching an episode of the hit series Mad Men, but the music is undeniably fresh, even quirky. Songs like ‘It Might As Well Be Spring’ and ‘Le Belleclaire Blues’ may conjure the Kennedy era but the arrangements are cheerfully contemporary. The warm, lush interpretations of ‘Smile’ and ‘Over The Rainbow’ manage to be both melancholy and uplifting while the highly polished, Latin-driven tracks ‘Bella Tina’ and ‘What a Fool Believes’ are reminiscent of 70’s pop.
