Biography

Amstersdam-based band Morgan Freeman releases their debut album as they enter their 3rd year. Nostalgia for post-90’s indie-punk-rock, irreverence for genre-borders, and a free-jazz ethos collaborate to deliver an unabashed deconstruction of 8 transparent compositions on their debut album “Blessed Virgin Mary’s Face-To-Face Encounter with the Divine Bullshit” out now on TryTone. In 2017, Morgan Freeman continues to explore the crossing at which abstraction, sacred maximalism and major triads intersect.  Morgan Freeman represents no more (or less) than the embodiment of the human condition in all of its glory, despair and contradiction.

Dennis Sekretarev – trumpet
Andrius Dereviancenko – saxophone
Jasper Stadhouders – guitar
Miguel Petruccelli – bass
Tristan Renfrow – drums

Press

“One of the nicest debut albums of 2016.”

Herman te Loo, Jazzflits 

“Jazz of various tastes are equally on the menu as punk or contemporary electronica…there is for sure no time for boredom.”

Ken Vos, Jazzism 

“An irresistible impulse, a libertarian breath, real risk taking…”

LesDNJ

“…works with a modern vocabulary on improvisation themes, creates moods in a highly concentrated form, makes sequences comprehensible, lets the listener be part of the creation of the music pieces, doesn’t present a final version but rather the creative process itself, shows the becoming, lets the difficulty of such an endeavor swing with the music…Hopefully there will be more to hear from this band Morgan Freeman.”

Freistil 

“Morgan Freeman is one of the most respected American actors today.”

Jan Granlie, Salt Peanuts
