"With the recent release of the captivating documentary film “I Called Him Morgan,” James Suggs brings the music of jazz trumpet legend Lee Morgan to the Palladium’s Side Door. Morgan was a protege of Dizzy Gillespie and Fats Navarro and reached critical acclaim at age 17. He spent many years with Art Blakey and his Jazz Messengers, before moving on to his own groups filled with original compositions. His impressive career had a plethora of recordings and performances until it was cut short tragically at the age of 34. James Suggs will be joined by his quartet, in a show that pays tribute to this celebrated man and his music with songs including fun hard-bop classics The Sidewinder, Hocus-Pocus, Ca-Lee-So, Ceora, and Cornbread.
