Genre: Jazz, Soul, Funk, Classical & Instrumental
One of the greatest multi-instrumentalists of his generation Morris "Mo" Pleasure has been at the forefront of American popular music for the last 30 years. A child prodigy, he began on piano at the age of 4 and by his early teens was also performing on bass, trumpet, guitar, drums, and violin! After gaining a BA in Music in the mid-'80s, Mo began his professional career playing with Ray Charles before moving into the studios, including work with the likes of George Duke, Natalie Cole, Dianne Reeves, Christina Aguilera, Michael McDonald, Chaka Khan and Roberta Flack amongst many others.
In 1993, he became a member of the legendary group Earth, Wind & Fire, ascending to become the band’s musical director from 1994-2001. He was featured with Janet Jackson, played keyboards and trumpet with Boney James and is currently MD for the iconic Bette Midler. Mo was also approached by Michael Jackson to play keyboards in Jackson's last touring band that was scheduled to perform in the late superstar’s historic 2009 comeback tour at London’s O2 Arena, which sadly never came to fruition. And if all that wasn't enough, he is also a renowned composer and producer. You get the idea; he's pretty special. Mo describes his music set as a selection of originals as well as his favorite classic funk, soul and groove songs. His live band is a hand-picked band of some of the finest musicians and Singers from around the world.
"...Pleasure proves that jazz can still be made which is smooth yet textured, is varied and interesting and can appeal to a wide range of ears. Superb and essential." Soul Express
