Biography

During the 1950s, Jaye P. Morgan emerged as a popular vocalist. Two of her songs, “The Longest Walk” and “That’s All I Want From You” were both successful on the American singles charts. During this period, she also performed as a vocalist on various television shows. Morgan made her television debut as a vocalist on Stop the Music, a quiz show which ran from 1954-55. After this show ended, in 1956 she became the hostess and vocalist on her own show, The Jaye P. Morgan Show. She was also a regular on Robert Q. Lewis’ daytime series and on the variety show Perry Presents.

In 1960 she portrayed an old time singer on the popular daytime comedy My Three Sons. During most of the 1960s, she retreated to a more private life, performing occasionally in nightclubs. Jaye P. Morgan re-emerged in the 1970s, primarily concentrating on her acting career rather than her music career.

However, she re-entered the recording studio in 1976 to record a one-off album that would not see commercial release. Bill Champlin produced Jaye P. Morgan at Sound City Studios in Los Angeles to produce an album of soul music, rounded out with David Foster on keyboards and the Tower of Power Horns and many of the top studio musicians of the day.

This recording was finally remastered and released in 2007 on Sonic Past Music as Jaye P. Morgan.
