Trumpeter Lee Morgan died at the hands of his common-law wife Helen, who shot him at the New York jazz club Slug's in 1972 when he was just 33. Kasper Collin tells the sad story of a horn man whose stinging solos and swinging tunes (such as "The Sidewinder") blazed a path in the post-bebop era. But heroin control of Morgan, who missed gigs and sold his shoes for the next shot in the arm. Despite the melancholy story, Morgan's terrific playing stands out.
