Gumbo is the fourth and first self-released studio album by Morton and was released on April 21, 2017, by Morton Records, as the follow-up to his third studio album New Orleans. Relocating from Los Angeles to his hometown of New Orleans in 2016, PJ was able to write the entire Gumbo album from home, a task he had never been able to accomplish before.
Evoking heroes such as Stevie Wonder, Marvin Gaye and Al Green, Morton enlisted a rotating musical cast of longtime friends and collaborators to join him in creating Gumbo such as Mutemath’s Darren King [drums], Keyon Harrold [trumpet], Chris Payton [guitar], DJ Raymond [bass], Brian Cockerham [bass], Matt Jones [arranger], and Big Ed Clark [drums]. With a dash of R&B groove, hip-hop bounce, and a whole lot of his signature soul, the ten tracks in Gumbo immediately simmer.
