Kasper Collin’s spellbinding documentary reveals the tender and tragic tale of hard bop trumpeter Lee Morgan, who may have been one of the most important trumpet players in jazz, and his common-law wife Helen, who first nursed him, then loved him and in the end shot him on stage. I CALLED HIM MORGAN isn’t just the greatest jazz documentary since LET’S GET LOST, it’s a documentary-as-jazz. (Jordan Hoffman)
