The team re-opens the 1970 murder case of a 20-year-old musician who was secretly instrumental in creating the popular Philadelphia soul sound.
"Cold Case" goes back to the '70s when the music of Philadelphia was 'killer'. Next week, the team delves into the 1970 murder of a musician who tried to keep his involvement with the Philadelphia Soul scene a secret from his strict preacher father for whom he was an organist.
Meanwhile, Lilly meets her teenage step-brother, Finn. Guest stars include Wesley Jonathan as the victim named Billy, Loretta Devine as a choir girlfriend of Billy, and Anna Maria Horsford as the owner of an after-hours Jazz club. Jamie Hector and Steven Williams also guest star, respectively, as the 1970 and 2009 incarnations of a record label founder.
Written by Ryan Farley and directed by John Showalter, the episode called "Soul" will air on CBS Sunday, October 18.
