The Dirty Dozen Brass Band - Funeral for a Friend









Funeral for a Friend

It was a return to the roots that inspired their 10th album, Funeral For A Friend, a breathtaking and deeply spiritual neo-traditional homage to the jazz funeral. Comprised solely of traditional gospel and spiritual songs, Funeral For A Friend is a moving sonic experience that mines the sounds and memories that have made the Dozen the preeminent musical export of New Orleans. From the somber “Amazing Grace” to the joyous and uplifting renditions of “I Shall Not Be Moved” and “Jesus is on the Mainline”, the band, joined by the Davell Crawford Singers, have preserved the spirit of New Orleans and of the jazz funeral for future generations.
