Monica (Roma Downey) has somehow landed an emcee gig at Club Indigo, once the greatest blues club in St. Louis, but now a seedy dive on the verge of bankruptcy. Despite the admonitions of his money-hungry grandson Zach (Geoffrey Nauffts), club owner Sam Brown (Hal Linden) insists upon keeping the place open unless he is told otherwise by "The Countess," a mysterious singer who'd helped save the club some thirty years earlier. Zach refuses to believe Sam's stories of all the jazz greats he has known, and in fact is convinced that The Countess never existed. It is up to Monica to prove Zach wrong and justify Sam's faith in the Countess before the old man's inevitable rendezvous with Angel of Death Andrew (John Dye). Al Jarreau, B.B.King, Dr. John and Al Hirt appear as themselves in the final scene--and just guess who The Countess turns out to be!
