The boys in the band revel in jazz, booze and the allure of women. It’s all fun and games, until Larry H. Evans, a prestigious photographer from the Big Apple, hits their sleepy town and dazzles them all – especially Charlie, with whom he has a deep fascination.Seduced by Larry, Charlie confesses he has strong feelings for his best friend, Jack DuPree, a slick, pick-pocket ladies’ man and second-chair trumpet player.Desperate to get his band into the pages of Downbeat, the hapless band leader, Teddy, invites Larry to hit the road with the band.

Charlie, who has found himself gazing moon-eyed at Jack more than once, works hard to keep his heart off his sleeve – and his encounter with Larry a secret.Their exploits take them on a journey that finds them running from the law, stealing hearts and liquor, and playing in the splashy clubs of Los Angeles during Hollywood’s most glamorous year. But behind the dazzle and grandeur of their adventure lurks the dark side of a dream that threatens even the very best of friendships.
