Jazz Funeral, Afor Wind Band

Coleman, Christopher

The Funeral processions of New Orleans are famous for their accompanied, mournful, traditional jazz bands. The return journeys however are completely different, with a celebratory ‘picking up’ of the tempos and the use of “kicking” syncopations, all in the affirmation of life after death. Chris Coleman’s wonderful New Orleans snapshot brings a whole new world to the meaning of the wind band.
