But Morgan's personal life remained troubled, and during a fight with his girlfriend at a New York club, he was shot and killed, aged thirty-three.""@en ;

    schema:description ""Although Lee Morgan lived and died in sensational style, the story told in this book does not just stumble between stages, studios, bars and needles; such a narrative could not do justice to the richness of the trumpeter's music, nor to the culture from which it came. The events of Morgan's life are presented here not just as items of biography, but also as points of departure for wider historical investigations that aim to situate the musician and his contemporaries in changing aesthetic, social and economic contexts. This biography draws on many original interviews with Morgan's colleagues and friends, as well as extensive archival research and critical engagement with the music itself."--Jacket."@en ;
