John Morris, composer

We at The Musical Theater Project/Harbinger Records mourn the passing of a dear friend: composer and arranger JOHN MORRIS.

Though best known as Mel Brooks’s composer of choice, John had a significant Broadway career as a dance music arranger (Bells Are RingingBye Bye Birdie and lots more) and wrote the music for A Time for Singing.

We are proud to include many of his performances as pianist/arranger on the classic Walden Records albums from the 1950s, now available on the Harbinger label. Listen to John play Gershwin or Rodgers: Scintillating!
