Cornetist, conductor, composer, conceptualist and inimitable spirit Lawrence D. “Butch” Morris, has succumbed to the cancer with which he was diagnosed last year.

Before his musical career, Morris served in Vietnam during the Vietnam War.
Morris came to attention with saxophonist David Murray's groups in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Morris's brother, double bassist Wilber Morris sometimes performed and recorded with Murray during this period. He also played with well-known artist and would be drummer A.R. Penck in 1990. Morris led a group called Orchestra SLANG. The group features drummer Kenny Wollesen, alto saxophonist Jonathon Haffner, trumpeter Kirk Knuffke and others. He performed and presented regularly as part of the Festival of New Trumpet Music, held annually in New York City.
