Episode Summary

Indigo Angel
Club Indigo, once St. Louis' premier blues and jazz club, has fallen hard times. It's owner, Sam, is getting on and his grandson Zach arrives to convince his grandfather to sell the club and move into a nursing home. Sam resists. He's always told Zach that "The Countess" told him "do nothing, til you hear from me" and he's sticking to those words. Zach assumesthat Sam has embriodered the past greatness of the club, and that he's made up stories of all the jazz greats who played there and were friends. Especially that story about "The Countess", the mysterious singer who arrived in the sixties and put the club back on the map. Whether these stories are true or not, it's apparent that Sam should really be in a nursing home, he's losing his memory as well as his well-being. But Sam has always had an open-mike night on Mondays, and despite his grandson's protests, proceeds to hire Monica to M.C. the event. Zach tricks his grandfather into signing a power of attorney agreement so that he can do what he thinks is best for his grandfather. But then, to Zach's astonishment, the singer Al Jarreau sows up, Sam's stories were all true, including the one about "The Countess". We see in a flashback that "The Countess" was actually Tess. The final open-mike night is a triumph, a packed house gets to hear music and tributes to Sam from B.B King, Dr. John, and Al Hirt. And then "The Countess" makes a return appearance. She brings down the house, as Sam passes away. Zach reconsidsers selling Club Indigo, inistead he'll transform it to The Sam Brown Blues Museum.moreless
