Jazz funerals are practiced by the less affluent and well known in many neighborhoods, Bywater being one. The Jason Miller Jazz Funeral wasn't posted in the paper. No journalists attended.
It was filmed by Kamp Katrina. No permit was obtained. Royal Street was blocked with trash cans.
Family and Friends practiced this age old tradition using what they had. The Music was donated by Gabriel, a young Canadian musician just landing in New Orleans the night before.
There was practice in the garden late into the night. Total strangers met and practiced the music for the next day on St Claduue Bywater's main street.
