Lee Morgan: Interview with Billy Hart

Here is an mp3 interview (warning--sound file with bad language) I found from jazz drummer Billy Hart, where he describes the circumstances surrounding the on-stage murder of trumpet player Lee Morgan. I found this thanks to a Groove Notes article called "The Most Famous Murder In Jazz." Both article and
interview are worth checking out.
