Lee Morgan Documentary.


Having, this year, endured films about Miles Davis and Chet Baker - only compensated for by Abi Lewis' affectionate portrait of the late proprietor of Newcastle's Jazz Café, Keith Crombie, in The Geordie Jazzmen, - this review by Frank Brody in The New Yorker of a documentary detailing the life and death of Lee Morgan may just re-dress the balance in the Jazz Film World.
Swedish director Kasper Collin’s I Called Him Morgan, centered on the relationship between the great trumpeter Lee Morgan and his common-law wife, Helen Morgan, who shot him to death, in a Lower East Side jazz club, in 1972.
Let's hope it hits the provincial circuit.
Lance.
