  • Episode Description
  • As part of a cultural exchange program, a tribal music group from Odolo, East Africa drops by Frank's Place on their tour of the United States. They like it there so much that they invite Frank to come see them perform, but he's got tickets to a Dizzy Gillespie concert on the same day, so instead their manager, Bob Coleman, talks him and the rest of the staff into attending an earlier rehearsal. The group's frontman, Adele, is so enamored with Dizzy Gillespie that Frank invites the group to come with them to see Dizzy in reciprocation. But Bob flies off the handle when Adele tells him afterwards that he wants to stay in the country to play jazz music -- which the leader of East Africa has banned -- and demands that Frank convince Adele to change his mind.moreless
