I Called Him Morgan (2016)

  • Documentary, History, Drama, Music
  • 1h 32m

On a snowy night in 1972, celebrated jazz musician Lee Morgan was shot to death by his common-law wife at a club in New York City. The memory of the event still haunts those who remember the Morgans. This is an evocatively filmed documentary about two unique personalities, the music that brought them together, love, jazz and America.

_“Collin’s exceptional, atmospheric film avoids the hysteria and hyperbole of similar true crime documentaries to usher this delicate story in with a palpable sense of sorrow rather than a desire to retroactively point the finger of justice.” _- David Jenkins, Little White Lies
