The Shrine of the Masters (SOM) Gallery in Harlem houses a permanent collection dedicated to the life and music of Lee Morgan.

Lena Sherrod, the executive director of the SOM Jazz Gallery put together this event to commemorate and honor Lee Morgan, as well as Jim Harrison from Jazz Mobile. The speakers included legends like Larry Ridley, Louis Hayes and Harold Mabern. I took a few pics of the event space.

Special thank you to Tom for hooking up the invite, and for Henry for coming at the last minute.
