I Called Him Morgan

Burlington Discover Jazz Festival presents

Special Benefit Screening I Called Him Morgan

Merrill's Roxy Cinema Map It

  • Saturday, June 3, 2017, 5:00 PM


”Artistic, obsessive and intoxicating, I Called Him Morgan is a documentary with a creative soul, and that makes all the difference." —LA Times

On a snowy night in February 1972, the 33-year-old jazz trumpet star Lee Morgan was shot dead by his common-law wife, Helen, during a gig at a club in New York City. Years later, she gives a remarkable interview that acts as a refrain throughout the film, which draws together a wealth of archival photographs and footage, notable talking heads and incredible jazz music to tell the ill-fated pair’s story.

Proceeds from these special screenings benefit the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival’s commitment to providing ten days of free live music in downtown Burlington. For full list of show times, visit
