I Called Him Morgan


On a snowy night in February 1972, 33-year-old jazz trumpet star Lee Morgan was shot and killed by his partner Helen - during a gig in New York City. Imprisoned for the crime, upon release she disappeared into obscurity for many years - until, many years later, a chance encounter led to a remarkable interview. With Helen's audio testimony threaded through the whole film, I Called Him Morgan is an atmospheric true-crime tale crossed with a deeply personal documentary story that will engross jazz fans and non-fans alike.
