    • Synopsis
    • Packed with thrilling music, SOUND OF REDEMPTION: THE FRANK MORGAN STORY, is a feature documentary about a gifted alto sax player and Charlie Parker's protégée, Frank Morgan. Morgan fell hard into heroin and got to be almost as good a conman and thief as he was a musician in order to feed his habit. The habit cost him 30 years of his life in and out of prison, most of it at San Quentin, where he performed in a big band with fellow junkie jazz musicians that grew famous in the Bay Area. To bring the past into the present, director NC Heikin brought an all-star band together into the “Q” for a concert. This hyper-emotional event forms the backbone of this riveting film.
