I Called Him Morgan
Directed by Kasper Collin • 2016 • Sweden, United States
Starring Lee Morgan, Helen Morgan, Wayne Shorter
On a snowy night in 1972, celebrated jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan was shot to death by his common-law wife, Helen, at a club in New York City. The memory of the event still haunts those who remember the Morgans. I CALLED HIM MORGAN is a deeply poignant, evocatively filmed tale about two unique personalities, the music that brought them together, love, jazz, and America.
