"4 fully inviting LONG-FORM collective improvisations"
American jazz and rhythm & blues trumpet player, born 1922, died 1958.
Joe Morris started his career in jazz, but is mostly known as the leader of the R&B-oriented Joe Morris Orchestra, the unofficial house band for Atlantic in the early to mid-1950's. Several future Atlantic stars passed through this orchestra's ranks, including Ray Charles and Lowell Fulson.
Morris wrote "Anytime, Any Place, Anywhere" for Atlantic and put the new record company on the map when it soared to number one on the R&B charts.
