One of the most exciting and dynamic trumpeters on the current scene, Joey Morant works as a soloist, in duet and trio settings, and as a part of larger bands and orchestras, including the Harlem Blues & Jazz Band. In addition, he has performed with jazz, soul, and rock ‘n’ roll greats, including Paul McCartney, Ray Charles, Lionel Hampton, and James Brown. He electrifies audiences with his dazzling horn technique, skillful scat singing, and humorous asides. His Louis Armstrong interpretations, both playing and singing, are extraordinary.
In Charleston, Morant was a regular performer at the “Chef and Clef” and conducted a 17-piece orchestra at the Dock Street Theatre and at “The Cistern” (at the College of Charleston), as part of the Moja Arts Festival. He is a former committee chairman of Charleston’s MOJA Arts Festival. Morant physically ran the 6.2 mile Cooper River Bridge Run for 6 years (& also played The National Anthem for the start of the race, .. which he continues to perform annually). This affiliation with the “Bridge Run” started in 1997 through his association with Julian Smith, the Race Director in Charleston, South Carolina.
