As a child he listened to records of jazz stars such as Duke Ellington, Count Basie and Miles Davis playing in the house. His father had been attending the Monterey Jazz Festival since it began in 1958 and when his children were born it became a yearly family outing. His latest album, “The View From Here” (Jazzvillage, Harmonia Mundi), embraces this musical heritage which goes back to the soundtrack of his youth when his father introduced him to the joys of the bass line.

Maidstone Fringe Festival 2014: Mark Morriss

Maidstone Fringe Festival 2014: Mark Morriss
Show Time 8:00pm / Doors Open 7:00pm

Can it really be twenty years since Mark Morris’s first shimmied into our lives as singer with The Bluetones? Apparently so. But thirteen hit singles, three Top Ten albums and a collaboration with a national treasure later -more of which shortly – his ability to sieve poetry from the colander of everyday life remains unique.
“I always try to add little things that most songs wouldn’t use,” he says of the lyrics on his remarkable first solo album ‘proper’, A Flash Of Darkness. “If I can squeeze a mention of Bergerac into a song (as he does in surefire smash ‘Consuela’) then I’m happy.”

But the great artists never let the grass grow under their feet, and now James Taylor’s impassioned musical curiosity has led to the most ambitious and exciting project in JTQ’s illustrious history. Allow us to introduce the new album ‘Closer To The Moon,’ the like of which you’ve never heard — because in addition to their infectious trademark stylings, the quartet have brought together the worlds of jazz and classical music in a brilliant and unexpected marriage.
