Recorded in a New Orleans alley on a Sunday afternoon in 1951. This is a truly unique field recording of a jazz band playing dirges intended as a soundtrack accompanying a parade to the graveyard during a traditional New Orleans funeral. It's beautiful mesmerizing music and about as deep as it gets. The Eureka Brass band played hundreds of funerals - dirges to the graveyard and raucous joyous sounds on the way out. Here we have just the dirges, featuring some of the finest trombone, trumpet, sousaphone, clarinet, sax and drumming you're likely to ever hear. This is a co-release with Singasong Fighter Records.
