Nick Morrison and JZ James come together for an evening original acoustic music, featuring solo sets and duo collaborations.
JZ James has an outstanding reputation as a versatile blues singer and guitar player. Playing on both resonator and dreadnought guitars JZ JAMES is a master of acoustic blues guitar styles ranging from rough Delta bottleneck sounds to melodic Texan and ragtime influenced Piedmont fingerpicking. Along with other musicians from the Neukölln scene, he and Nick collaborated on his 2016 release ‚A Great Notion‘.
The French-American guitar player and singer Nick Morrison has in the past years lent his African-infused guitar style to the Berlin bands Polyversal Souls, Tiliboo Afrobeat, and the Charity Children, as well as his family-collaboration, Pallet of Leaves. Meanwhile, he has never ceased refining his mix of Kora-style rhythms, desert-blues and vocals that move from melancholy to ecstasy.
