I Called Him Morgan Instrueret af Kasper Collin
It’s a tactic of many a modern screenwriter to parlay the high drama of classical tragedy into a more approachable and relatable template. Kasper Collin’s I Called Him Morgan does this too, but his tragedy is ripped from cold reality, as it relays the heartbreaking tale of superlative bop trumpeter, Lee Morgan.

This movie is poignant; the personalities on display here are all beautiful, brave people. As much music as the movie showcases, this isn’t an analytical documentary. There’s no material about Morgan’s ability to fit in to both a somewhat commercial iteration of jazz and free modes of playing. And it sidesteps the “Sidewinder” years almost entirely. Its treatment of the music is more phenomenological.

Fulfilling the promise of My Name Is Albert Ayler, Collin’s I Called Him Morgan offers not just an aesthetic revelation, but a political one as well. By exhuming Helen’s story, Collin’s film reveals what jazz fandom ignores—the misogynoir that stretches deeply, if imperceptibly, into the lives of some of the genre’s most hidden figures.
