This podcast is a tribute to great trumpet player and jazz composer Lee Morgan. It features Billy Hart telling the tragic story of the day Lee Morgan died. While Billy was not a witness to this event, and his story is pieced together from second and third hand information, it is a fascinating insight into the dark side of the jazz scene in the early 1960's. The podcast begins with Ben Williams telling the story of the life and death of Lee Morgan through music and spoken word. Following is Lee Morgan's music and Billy Hart's words.
