  • New Orleans Jazz Funeral March

    1:39

    Jazz funeral is a common name for a funeral tradition with music which developed in New Orleans, Louisiana.

    The term jazz funeral was long in use by observers from elsewhere, but was generally disdained as inappropriate by most New Orleans musicians and practitioners of the tradition.
    The preferred description was funeral with music; while jazz was part of the music played, it was not the primary focus of the ceremony. This reluctance to use the term faded significantly in the final 15 years or so of the 20th century among the younger generation of New Orleans brass band musicians more familiar with the post-Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Soul Rebels Brass Band funk influenced style than the older traditional New Orleans jazz.

    The tradition blends strong European and African cultural influences. Louisiana's colonial past gave it a tradition of military style brass bands which were called on for many occasions, including playing funeral processions. This was combined with African spiritual practices, specifically the Yoruba tribe of Nigeria and other parts of West Africa.
    Jazz funerals are also heavily influenced by early twentieth century African American Protestant and Catholic churches, black brass bands, and the Haitian Voudoo's idea of celebrating after death in order to please the spirits who protect the dead.
    Another group that has influenced jazz funerals is the Mardi Gras Indians The tradition was widespread among New Orleanians across ethnic boundaries at the start of the 20th century. As the common brass band music became wilder in the years before World War I, some white New Orleanians considered the hot music disrespectful, and such musical funerals became rare among the city's white citizens. After the 1960s, it gradually started being practised across ethnic and religious boundaries. Most commonly such musical funerals are done for individuals who are musicians themselves, connected to the music industry, or members of various social aid and pleasure clubs or Carnival krewes who make a point of arranging for such funerals for members. Although the majority of jazz funerals are for African American musicians there has been a new trend in which jazz funerals are given to young people who have died.

    The organizers of the funeral arrange for hiring the band as part of the services. When a respected fellow musician or prominent member of the community dies, some additional musicians may also play in the procession as a sign of their esteem for the deceased.

    A typical jazz funeral begins with a march by the family, friends, and a brass band from the home, funeral home or church to the cemetery. Throughout the march, the band plays somber dirges and hymns. A change in the tenor of the ceremony takes place, after either the deceased is entombed, or the hearse leaves the procession and members of the procession say their final goodbye and they cut the body loose. After this the music becomes more upbeat, often starting with a hymn or spiritual number played in a swinging fashion, then going into popular hot tunes. There is raucous music and cathartic dancing where onlookers join in to celebrate the life of the deceased. Those who follow the band just to enjoy the music are called the second line, and their style of dancing, in which they walk and sometimes twirl a parasol or handkerchief in the air, is called second lining.

    Some typical pieces often played at jazz funerals are the slow, and sober song Nearer My God to Thee and such spirituals as Just a Closer Walk With Thee. The later more upbeat tunes frequently include When the Saints Go Marching In and Didn't He Ramble.

    RISE UP (Lyrics)
    Love is in collision with my lonely planet.
    How can I stay here today
    How can I fly away
    While this hidden pain destroys my father.
    How can I fly away
    How can I stay here today
    Love, rise up against the lord of the fist.
    Love, rise up against the fascist police.
    Love is the condition for revolution days,
    love is the condition for revolution ways.
    UP UP, RISE UP!
    Love, rise up against the lord of the fist.
    Love, rise up against the fascist police.
    Love is the condition for revolution days
    love is the condition for revolution ways.
    UP UP, RISE UP! RISE UP RISE UP RISE UP RISE UP.
    LEAVE ALL THE PRISONS IT'S TIME TO FLY AWAY
    (While this hidden pain destroys my father I want to fly away)

    INSORGI (trad.ita)
    L'amore è in contrasto col mio pianeta di solitudine. Come posso volar via? Come posso restare qui, oggi? Mentre queste dolore misterioso distrugge mio padre, come posso restare qui? Come posso volar via? Amore, insorgi contro il signore del pugno e contro la polizia fascista. La condizione per i giorni rivoluzionari è l'amore. L'amore è la condizione per le strade della rivoluzione. Su, su. Insorgi!
