The story was actually two different stories put into one. The first half was about Indy working as a waiter in Chicago, where he hangs out with Sidney Bechet and his band. Sidney gives Indy a soprano sax, that Indy learned how to sort of play when he was in the Army. He teaches Indy how to play and Indy spends half the time badly playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star, getting laughed at, and dealing with segregation in Chicago. The second half was about Indy and his college roommate Eliot Ness, who he regards as "the world's youngest stuffy old fart" who team up with Indy's old army buddy Ernest Hemingway who is now writing for the Chicago Tribune. His boss is killed and the three of them solve the mystery which ends up centering around Al Capone. The bookends took place in Wyoming in 1950 where Indy (Harrison Ford) and Gray Cloud were retrieving a peace pipe and were being chased by some unnamed bad guys. They escaped and took shelter from a snowstorm in a cabin where Indy finds a soprano sax in a suitcase and proceeds to tell the story. At the end of the show, the bad guys burst in the cabin and Indy blows the soprano sax, causing the snow on the tree outside to fall on top of the evil men and then they walk off...happily ever after...
