Feat. Bubber Miley


This record was produced in New York City during May of 1923 featuring Thomas Morris and Bubber Miley cornets, and Charlie Irvis trombone, with unknown piano, tenor sax, banjo, & drums.

*"Bull Blues" was composed by Thomas Morris.

A respected figure of the New York jazz scene of the early '20's Thomas Morris led his own groups and recorded with Clarence Williams, "Charlie Johnson's Paradise Orchestra", Fats Waller, and Sidney Bechet. He made a brief on-screen appearance in the 1929 film "St. Louis Blues", starring Bessie Smith.

Sometime during the early 1930's Tommy Morris gave up playing cornet and became involved with the "Universal Peace Mission Movement", a bizarre cult whose parishioners believed their leader Father Divine to be the second coming of Christ. Upon joining this strict religious movement Tommy changed his name to Brother Pierre and would remain a member never again to return to music.
