Personal Quote:

I thought I wanted to be a concert pianist, but I didn't like practicing , and that should have been a cue. Then I began doing composing and arranging on Broadway, and I soon realized I had found my vocation.

Trivia:

Morris composed a musical version of "How Green Was My Valley in 1966 under the title "A Time for Singing." Unfortunately it was not successful. See more »
