January 17, at 1:00 p.m.
This multimedia performance is a visual sequence of George Morrison images accompanied by original jazz guitar compositions by his son, Briand Morrison. Young adults and adults will enjoy this amazing blend of art and music.
Morrison was surrounded by all styles of music as a child. His life changed when he heard Joe Pass, Portraits of Duke Ellington. That was when Morrison realized jazz Could be played on a guitar. Morrison played through college, playing jazz in coffee houses. He now entertains crowds with his new Blues/Rock act that is reminiscent of a Hendrix, Stevie Ray, Allman Bros., early Eric Clapton sound-a refined 60s/70s style with a flavorful chord or two utilizing a looper, drum machine, and some vocal.
Morrison wrote twelve compositions that accompany the 128 images of George Morrison paintings and his drawings. Some of these images have never been shown to the public. The works re from all periods, from the 1940s through his death in 2000.
Join us for Musical Impressions by Briand Morrison.
