Floyd Morris
Floyd (* 1926) was a pianist and organist. He spent most of his time enlivening R&B recording sessions in his native Chicago and had a very limited career as a solo artist, waxing half a dozen singles and the album The ConSoul of Floyd Morris between 1964 and 1972.
In the early 1950s Morris appeared with a group known as the Four Shades of Rhythm at the Bar-O-Music in Chicago for several years but apparently did not record with them. He moved on to join bassist Johnny Pate's trio and then vocalist Oscar Brown jr. Morris settled in at Chicago's studios backing artists like Gene Chandler, The Impressions and Etta James. That brings us to The ConSoul of Floyd Morris, a fine helping of organ instrumental R&B that also features the sax of Buddy Lucas.
Floyd died in 1988.
