The Song of Morgan is an album by avant-musician and singer/songwriter Jandek released, as with all Jandek albums, on Corwood Industries.[1] The album is a box set, containing 9 CDs. Each disc contains a single piece for solo piano.[2] There are no vocals on any of the pieces. The album sleeve depicts Jandek as a child and is the youngest photograph of "The Representative From Corwood Industries" that has been used as artwork for a Jandek album.[3]

The pieces are all entitled "Nocturne" and numbered one to nine, shortest piece being "Nocturne Seven" at 51 minutes and the longest "Nocturne Three" at just over an hour.[4]
