“He rides the cymbals like Max Roach while dropping bombs like Billy Higgins.” -Alexander Varty, The Georgia Straight Morgan Childs is a drummer and bandleader who has cemented his reputation as one of Canada’s foremost jazz musicians. Peers and elders alike have expressed admiration for Morgan’s unique blend of forward-looking, contemporary instincts with his warm, vintage aesthetic and thorough understanding of the jazz tradition. Morgan’s Quartet features three of Canada’s top players with JUNO-nominated saxophonist Kelly Jeff erson (Emilie-Claire Barlow), rising star guitarist Lucian Gray (Berklee School of Music) and Neil Swainson who spent 20 years as the bassist of choice for piano legend George Shearing.
