Wyoming, 1950. Indiana Jones and his friend Grey Cloud have obtained a sacred ceremonial pipe and end up in a snow-logged cabin. When Jones finds a soprano sax, he is reminded of his college days in Chicago 1920. Indy was waiting tables at Colosimo's and had become obsessed with Jazz music. He managed to befriend Sidney Bichet who encouraged him to practice the soprano sax. But then Colosimo was murdered on the doorstep of his restaurant and Indy got caught up in the investigation together with his roommate Eliot Ness and young reporter Ernest Hemingway.Written by

During his brief appearances as the middle-aged Indiana Jones, Harrison Ford sports a beard. This is because he was filming The Fugitive (1993) at the time his scenes were shot, and he didn't have time to shave it off. See more »

A good 90 minute show, heavy on the the blues and jazz in the first half but the actors miming the instrumentals come off as too fake. Good music and vocals though. The Indy character takes a bit of a subdued role here, after all his adventures overseas - army, POW, secret service, vampires, etc. during the war he must have wanted to go back to the simple life of being a college kid with a part-time job. In this respect the continuity of the character suffers a bit. Many "real" characters written in the story - the various musicians, Indy's roommate, his friend Hemingway, the bartender with the "scarface" and others. A big action sequence near the end with Model T's (or were they A's?, they could've run faster)...and no real ending, but a glimpse of 1920's Chicago city politics/justice.
