Thomas, who interviewed Ms. Morgan, in February 1996, a month before her death, will also present an audio documentary called The Helen Morgan Project, which features Helen talking about her experience. Larry will also talk about the upcoming Swedish documentary movie American Jazz Musician, which is scheduled to be released soon and will also include Thomas and excerpts of the taped interview.
