The recordings by Sam Morgan's Jazz Band for Columbia Records in 1927 are some of the highest regarded New Orleans classic jazz recordings of the decade, and continue to be influential.

Sidemen in the band included brothers Isaiah and Andrew Morgan on trumpet and tenor sax, respectively, Earl Fouché on alto sax and Jim Robinson on trombone. Robinson's cousin Sidney Brown (aka Little Jim or Jim Little) was the bassist, and George Guesnon was Morgan's banjoist from 1930 to 1935.

Columbia Special Products, a division of Columbia Records, produced in 1964 a three record set, Jazz Odyssey, Volume 1: The Sound of New Orleans (1917–1947). The music of "Sam Morgan's Jazz Band", recorded in 1927, comprised the entire sixth side. They were: Steppin' on the Gas; Everybody's Talkin'; Mobile Stomp; Sing On; Short Dress Gal; Bogalusa Strut; Down by the Riverside; and Over in Gloryland.

The "Young Morgan Band" as it was commonly called by fans of the day, was one of the most popular territory bands touring the gulf coast circuit (Galveston, Texas to Pensacola, Florida).
