Episode 97: Helen and Lee Morgan

Lee and Helen Morgan, photographer unknown

Happy 2019 everyone! We thought we’d start the new year with something a little different. Instead of taking you on a rock n roll journey we are diving into some sweet jazz with the story of Lee and Helen Morgan.

Everyone who knew Helen loved her. Her place was a mecca for musicians and artists alike who needed a good meal and some TLC. When Lee, an extremely talented trumpeter who was very much down on his luck arrived on her doorstep Helen knew she had to help him get back on his feet. With her love and devotion Lee did just that. But a fairy tale ending wasn’t in their future.
