Richard Conrad Morgan

Born in Eastbourne, England, in 1956, Richard Morgan grew up listening to the Beatles and the Rolling Stones. In 1981, he put away his turntable before going off to study in Canada and he only took it out again twenty years later in Switzerland. Re-inventing himself as a singer/songwriter in 2005 was therefore something of a surprise. A warm voice, melodies that swing, witty lyrics: Richard Morgan's songs remind one of the standards of the Golden Age of jazz. Also a documentary film-maker (www.invisipics.com) Music available:

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
