Wesley Morgan is a bassist, audio engineer, and educator in the Chicago area. An instructor at Lewis University on topics related to music technology and jazz history, he also performs with a variety of groups covering a range of musical styles, with a particular emphasis on jazz and popular music. He has recently commenced an archival project in which he is recording a large swath of modern jazz and improvisational musicians, primarily from the Chicago area, while fulfilling the roles of bassist and production engineer on the recordings. [The goal of the project is to document current approaches to improvised music while giving a nod to the notable contributions to jazz history made in Chicago nearly a century ago.] Morgan has performed with Birch Creek since 2015, making 2022 his seventh season.
