When a graduate student with a passion for jazz arrived in New York to discover that a legendary saxophonist he had assumed long dead is not only still alive but playing in an East Village club, he spends night after night in awe-struck attendance.
And when the legend grants him an interview on Halloween, he jumps at the opportunity. What unfolds is an endless night filled with an extraordinary story told by a dying master: a story centered upon the Halloween night of his eleventh year, a white woman screaming in a shanty town, a killer and an unidentified man fleeing with a strange bundle in his arms.

A New York City college student stumbles onto the fact that one of his favorite blues saxophonists still lives. Better yet, he's playing a two-week engagement nearby. When the legend grants a rare interview, the student is unprepared for the horrifying story about to unfold. Peter Marinker effortlessly jumps from struggling student to old, alcoholic, unschooled African-American man in narrating this tale within a tale. The two points of view are so distinct as to sound entirely like two performers. Marinker's tone and pacing are subdued, in keeping with the solemnity of the story, and his lack of pyrotechnics provides an explosive finishing touch to the performance.
