Writing in Downbeat, John Corbett calls Joe Morris ". . . the most exciting and original jazz plucker to emerge in the last decade." The 51 year old guitarist has been at the vanguard of improvised music for over two decades. Born in New Haven, and a veteran of the Boston and New York jazz scenes, Morris has recorded with Black Saint, ECM, Hat Hut, Leo, Incus, Okka Disc, AUM Fidelity and OmniTone. His musical associates include Matthew Shipp, William Parker, Joe and Mat Maneri, Rob Brown, Borah Bergman, Ken Vandermark, Eugene Chadborne, Susie Ibarra and Hamid Drake. The Wire calls Joe Morris "one of the most profound improvisers at work in the U.S." He is currently on the faculty at New England Conservatory in the jazz and improvisation department.
