Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight: Jazz

 BLOJ   (DC, 1995)

™ and ©1995 DC Comics, Inc.

In one of his strangest cases ever, Batman is called upon to stop the murder of an old jazz saxophonist whom the world believes to have died some forty years ago. The jazz man in question is Blue Byrd, one of the legends of the art form. Although he could stun audiences with the way he handled a saxophone, his control over his own life was much shakier. He gave in to the temptations of his trade: drinking, drugs, and one-night stands. In time, he became a hopeless heroin addict. Finally, desperation drove him to fake his own death and to flee to Europe to escape the pressures of the limelight.

Four decades later, he had cleaned up his act and returned to America. But now, three jive-talking super-thugs called “the Brothers of the Bop” are out to kill him. It’s up to Batman to find out why—and to prevent these weird villains from causing Byrd to suffer a second, real death.
