Yes, it is James Morrison.  From the album "Snappy Doo", the tune 
entitled "Le Belleclaire Blues".  Ray Brown is in fact the bassist on 
the date.  James is still quite active, has appeared on some of the 
more recent Lalo Schifrin "Jazz meets the Symphony" recordings, at 
the Vail Jazz Party within the last few years and as a featured 
soloist with the Colorado Music Festival orchestra in Boulder.

James is pretty much a household name in Australia, has even had his 
own TV show there thus illustrating the difference between acceptance 
of jazz in the US versus elsewhere.  He's also hosted the in-flight 
jazz programming on Qantas Airways.
