    Ever get the urge to be in one of those New Orleans dirge walks? You know, they start out slow...... Walking behind the family... then pick it up slowly, getting Louis jazzy as they go.... Always thought that would be cool. Not the situation, just the music.......Ahhh

    No. For me, I've really grown to dislike any kind of walking or marching while playing.

    The idea of a less "somber" but still "respectful" setting appeals a lot to me. For those of us that believe in life after death, this makes perfect sense and yes, it is very special being part of one. Especially the part about the trumpet players not having the urge to take the last note up an octave! :evil:

    I think I'd rather like to have my passing celebrated this way - the only negative would be an inability to participate. :oops:

    From time to time (aspecially on May 14 days) French jazz musicians (and not only French ones) meet in Juan-les-Pins, French Riviera, before the statue of Sidney Béchet. Full orchestras or sometimes one guy alone, they play such tunes from New Orleans as "Didn't he ramble". We don't any much walk, but try to recall the spirit. Sometimes music is good, sometimes not so good, but emotion always answers "present", and neighbours like it.

    So Dupac, does this mean I have to plan to "fall off me perch" on the 14 May to take advantage. :shock:

    Dupac, you have understood exactly. My apologies, I should be more careful with my language. :oops:

    It's okay, Dupac. Between the three main versions of English, Great Britain,Australia/New Zealand, American, the slang phrases can be hard to understand. Even between those who inhabit these countries.......Buck:oops::huh:
