Malowe Morris

The nephew from the 1920s trumpeter Thomas Morris, Marlowe Morris was an excellent swing pianist who hardly ever rose above the amount of a talented journeyman. In early stages he performed drums, harmonica and ukulele before buying the piano. Marlowe, who was simply encouraged by Artwork Tatum, mostly proved helpful as the single pianist or a head of the trio during his primary years although there have been stints with June Clark from 1935-36, the Spirits of Tempo in 1939, Coleman Hawkins from 1940-41, Al Sears in 1943 after a limited period in the armed forces, Sid Catlett in 1944, and Eddie South and Tiny Grimes in 1946. Marlowe documented a fair quantity being a sideman in the mid-1940s and made an appearance in the common film brief Jammin’ the Blues with Lester Youthful and Illinois Jacquet. Around 1946 Marlowe started doing work for the postoffice. In the 1950s when he performed music it had been usually on body organ (where he was much less distinctive) instead of piano. Marlowe’s saving debut was with Lionel Hampton in 1940, but his just album being a leader (totally on body organ) was trim for Columbia in 1961-62.
