This band has no press


Still working on that hot first release.



the Morphtet formed in 2013 when three veterans of the Chicago jazz and world music scene began jamming regularly around the piano at Morpho Gallery, a north side emerging art gallery. Soon the group's sound coalesced around a boogie and barrelhouse approach to new and old standards, with some incipient original material drawing and pushing against influences from traditional jazz, including bits of reggae, funk, and interactive improvisational forms. A spate of gigs followed, and the band is hard at work on their first album's worth of homegrown tunes.
