Album Notes
For over two decades, Tim Morrison has been captivating audiences with his singing, lyric sound and purity of tone. Formerly Associate Principal Trumpet of the Boston Symphony, he is now pursuing a career as a soloist, recording artist and free-lance musician. He has appeared with orchestras in the United States and abroad, including the Rotterdam Philharmonic, the New Japan Philharmonic, the Orquesta Sinfonica del Estado de Mexico, the Caracas Philharmonic, the Taipei Sinfonetta, the Stavanger Symphony, the Oregon Symphony, the Boston Classical Orchestra, the Albany Symphony, the Pacific Symphony and recently finished a solo concert tour of Taiwan and Japan, where he was featured as soloist and conductor with the Taipei Symphony Orchestra and the Yokohama Chamber Orchestra. At the invitation of Seiji Ozawa, Tim performs regularly with Ozawa’s famed Saito Kinen Orchestra and Opera Nomori Orchestra and is presently a visiting professor at the Shobi Music School in Tokyo.

Tim also served as the Principal Trumpet of the Boston Pops Orchestra from 1987-1997 and appeared frequently with the orchestra as a soloist for concerts, television broadcasts and recordings. He is a favorite soloist of Pops Conductor Laureate John Williams, who has said, “he has an American sound and his sound is very touching, very beautiful. There is real serenity in his playing…” This appreciation has led John Williams and other noted Hollywood composers to feature Tim on their filmscores. To date, he has been credited as soloist on the following filmscores…Born on the 4th of July, JFK, Apollo 13, Panther, Nixon, Amistad, Saving Private Ryan, Bobby and Lions to Lambs. That same appreciation also led John Williams to dedicate “Summon the Heroes” to Tim, written by Williams for the 1996 Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta.

A native of Portland Oregon, Tim began his studies with Fred Sautter, the former principal trumpet of the Oregon Symphony. He is a graduate of the New England Conservatory of Music, where he was a student of former Boston Symphony principal trumpeters Roger Voisin and Armando Ghitalla. Tim joined the Boston Symphony in 1980 and ended his first tenure in 1984 to tour and record with the renown Empire Brass, performing in over 100 concerts a year. He returned to the BSO in 1987 as Associate Principal, a post he held for the next ten years. He is heard frequently in recital, and is in demand internationally as a clinician, having been invited to work with students in Japan, Spain, Venezuela, Canada, Switzerland and the United States.

Tim has served on the faculties of Boston University and Boston Conservatory, the New England Conservatory of Music, where he was the recipient of an Outstanding Alumnus award, and is currently on the faculty of California State University, Long Beach.

Tim Morrison, a new star trumpet.
Many jazz standard pieces, of high musical thickness, picked up on an important album, magnificently interpreted by a big trumpet. A fantastic album, to listen in relax, with the friends or, better, together to a sweet and beautiful girl. My compliments . Five stars.

Don't be put off by the 'easy listening' moniker.
I know, it looks like just another 'easy-listening' CD...but it isn't! This is some of the most gorgeous trumpet playing I've ever heard, and Tim breathes life into these old chestnuts through his trumpet in the most astounding way. Trumps others doing similar music, and I, too, am looking forward to the next thing Tim does.

I have been listening to this disc every chance I get to absorb the sound coming from Tims horn.Being a trumpet player I know how important it is to have a beautiful sound in your head before you try to make one yourself. Tim's band-mates are listening and provide the support to make this one of the most gorgeous albums of standards since they were pop tunes.

Tim, I don't know what to say other than... Great album. I have to admit this is my most played album since it was made. Thanks and I'm looking forward to your next project.

To trumpet lovers, this is easily, one of the nicest easy listening trumpet jazz album out there!! You will listen to it over and over.
