THOMAS MORRIS picture
Cornetist Thomas Morris is a somewhat shadowy, yet prolific figure of the early New York Jazz scene. He led a pretty good band called Thomas Morris and his Seven Hot Babies in Harlem in the mid-1920s and appeared on around 150 recordings. He recorded with Fats Waller, Sidney Bechet, Charlie Johnson's Paradise Orchestra and Clarence Williams as well as accompanying Blues singers like Margaret Johnson, Sara Martin and Eva Taylor. He appeared briefly in the Bessie Smith film, "St. Louis Blues" in 1929. Some time in the early 1930s he left the music business worked as a Red Cap at Grand Central Station in New York and then became a member of Father Divine's Universal Peace Mission Movement. This was a predominately African American fundamentalist Christian cult that believed in the equality of all people and that the leader of the group, Father Divine was the second coming of Christ. read more...
