    I Called Him Morgan (2016) Haunting documentary film about the life of jazz great Lee Morgan and his wife, Helen, by Swedish filmmaker Kasper Collin. The film exquisitely presents the complex relationship between Lee and his wife through an exclusive interview with Helen one month before her death in 1996 and never-before-seen archival photos of Morgan within the NYC Jazz scene from the 50s through the 70s. Lee Morgan started his career playing with Dizzy Gillespie when he was just 17 years old. His age and his musical ability quickly became a buzz within the jazz community, establishing him as a child prodigy. Jazz fans would travel to see him whether he was playing with Dizzy, Art Blakey and The Messengers, or with his own band later on, The Lee Morgan Quartet. Morgan was one of the most recorded artists in the Blue Note catalog. His sound was unique and he played from his soul. But unfortunately he succumbed to an addiction with heroin that disabled his ability to play. Then he met Helen, who nursed him through his heroin addiction and made him a functioning musician again. Their life was intertwined: Helen cooked, cleaned, managed Lee’s bookings, and collected his pay. Lee did what he did best -- composed and played music. Their life together ended tragically, however. On a snowy night in February 1972, Lee was shot dead by Helen during a gig at a club in New York City. The murder sent shockwaves through the jazz community, and the memory of the event still haunts those who knew the Morgans. Formats: DVD, Blu-ray Disc. (FilmRise).
