Presented by Further Jazz, Inc. Helen Morgan had nursed her common-law husband, jazz great Lee Morgan, through heroin addiction. On a February night in 1972, she walked into Slug’s Saloon in the East Village with a gun in her purse, and after they fought and he physically threw her out of the bar, she returned and shot him. Helen then relinquished the gun and waited for the police to come for her. Many years later, she was interviewed about her life with the brilliant and unpredictable musician. NR / 92 min. A post-show concert featuring Glenn Wilson & Friends will follow the film, focusing on the music of Lee Morgan.
