Husband and wife music team Peggy and Bob Morris have created their own form of communication in Morris Code, a unique blend of jazz and pop that is driving the Cleveland-area group to instant popularity among jazz listeners.
At Morris Code's core is Peggy, a multi-talented musician, songwriter and dancer who leads the group with a charismatic, unmatched enthusiasm. She moves effortlessly from soulful vocalizations to explosive saxophone and flute solos. As bassist, Bob provides the band's backbone with a unique approach to each song's harmonic structure. Meanwhile, drummer Chris Ceja, Morris Code's newest addition, delivers a bottomless groove that keeps audiences on their feet.
The Morrises met while Peggy was working as a professional dancer on a nationally syndicated television show. Bob, a musician since age 13, had already become a prolific bass player, keyboardist, songwriter and arranger. The two paired up and have been partners in life and music ever since.
After more than a decade touring with dance and show bands throughout the U.S. and parts of Canada and Europe, the couple returned to music as a vehicle for spiritual expression.
The couple's efforts laid the groundwork for their '96 release, "On My Way Home." In 1998, the pair teamed with drummer Chris Ceja and keyboardist -producer Aaron Lindsey to create Morris Code's current 11-song CD, "Just For You." From the funky groove of "G Wiz," to the colorful, "Just For You," to the popular, "In Your Ear," the result is a refreshingly honest, guaranteed smash sound that is attracting much-deserved attention in the jazz world.
Morris Code's message comes from a togetherness of heart, mind, and soul -not a telegraph. Already known for their powerful, uplifting stage performance, discover what the buzz is all about and why Morris Code has listeners coming back for more.
