Storyline

Russell Huxtable (Cliff's Dad) has an off night on stage at the Jazz club. His usual flair for the trombone eluded him and his playing was less than he can accept. He's due to play one more time and then retire from performing. With help from his wife Anna, he keeps in practice for the big night. Will Russell blow up a storm or blow his big finale?
