Ray 'Goose' Gander runs a jazz club in Chicago and he's coming under pressure from mobster Lou Cagan to sell booze at the club. Gander is a former musician who is in the business for the love of the music and wants nothing to do with selling the mob's liquor, but he's being backed into a corner. His protégé, trumpeter Eddie Moon, urges him to pack it in and go on the road but when Gander refuses, Eddie also talks him out of signing up with Cagan. When Gander is shot, Eddie blames himself for the death of his friend and mentor and he works with Eliot Ness and the Untouchables to bring Cagan down. He forms a partnership with Cagan to re-open Gander's club and he also starts an affair with Cagan's wife but he soon falls under suspicion. Written by garykmcd

All that jazz
10 May 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A plot that really made no sense defeats the Untouchables regulars and a nice set of guest stars in this episode centered in the jazz scene in Chicago.

The music is really great and the folks come into Will Kulava's joint to hear Robert Duvall on the cornet and the combo behind him. But Marc Lawrence is pressuring Kulava to serve his distilled goods at his club. He has torpedo Richard Bakalyn doing the pressuring. He's got the bosses from New York pressuring him. And he's got a young wife in Kathleen Nolan with a roving eye.

I will only say two things about the episode. For what Robert Duvall is asked to do by Robert Stack he should have kept his mind on business. He's one of the best actors around, but Duvall in the end is not a really sympathetic figure. Secondly most of the guest stars wind up quite dead.

Not one of the better Untouchables episodes.
