All sections »
 
Synopsis
On a snowy night in February 1972, celebrated jazz musician Lee Morgan was shot dead by his common-law wife 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. This feature documentary is a love letter to two unique personalities and the music that brought them together. A film about love, jazz and America.

Director’s Statement
Among many of those that knew Lee and Helen, Helen is as much the woman who saved him as the woman who killed him. To me this is a tribute to them both and to the incredible music that brought them together. I want to say thanks to everyone who has contributed to this film, and not least I want to express my eternal gratitude to all those who have made and who make this music possible. I cannot imagine my life without it.
