Continue with us on our tuneful journey through SONGS ON SCREEN as we delve into the swinging, sultry and sometimes dark underbelly of jazz and its musicians with I CALLED HIM MORGAN, a Best Documentary nominee on the recent film festival circuit. On a snowy night in February 1972, the 33 year old jazz trumpet star Lee Morgan was shot dead by his common-law wife, Helen, during a gig at a club in New York City. Part true-crime tale, part love story, and an all-out musical treat, I CALLED HIM MORGAN is a stirring tribute to two unique personalities and the music that brought them together.
