Jack Webb blends jazz with downbeat crime drama in Pete Kelly's Blues. This short-lived series spawned an Academy Award nominated film and a TV show. Webb stars as Pete Kelly, a cornet player in 1920s Kansas City. Kelly and his combo play in a speakeasy, and Kelly finds all kinds of trouble in the crowd that comes in for drinks and music. We'll hear "Zelda," originally aired on NBC on September 5, 1951.
