Story / Comments
"A traditional jazz funeral from the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center to the Superdome, with brass band and a horse-drawn hearse.

In the street waiting for the service to end, musicians who had been directed to keep a mournful tone played "Amazing Grace" on tubas, saxophones and trumpets. And from the packed block, a single phrase resounded again and again to the familiar melody: "Praise God, " the crowd sang."
