I called him Morgan
On Friday night, February 19th in 1972, Helen Morgan walked into a bar in New York's East Village with a gun in her purse. She came to meet her husband, the great jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan. They argued, he threw her out of the bar. Moments later, she went back in, shot Lee, and quietly delivered her weapon.
Decades later, Helen was interviewed about life with the talented but unstable musician. These interviews form the basis for this deeply moving and beautifully produced documentary from Swedish Kasper Collin, who previously made "My Name is Albert Ayler".
