The Morgan Childs Soul Jazz Revue is an extension of drummer Morgan Childs’ co-led trio with guitarist Ben Bishop and organist Jeff McLeod (@bmcorgantrio). Adding horns, bass, and, vocals to their classic soul jazz sound is a logical extension of their thorough investigation of the classic 1960s music of soul jazz pioneers like Grant Green, Lonnie Smith, Idris Muhammad, and Jimmy McGriff.

The Morgan Childs Soul Jazz Revue includes many prominent members of Toronto’s vibrant jazz, soul, and blues scene.
