On their tenth album, the Crescent City's Dirty Dozen Brass Band bring it all back to the cobblestone streets where it began. The Dozens have done it all, from straight New Orleans jazz to restless funky experimentation, and here they put it all down to the roots of its origin. Funeral for a Friend is just that, a complete reenactment of a New Orleans funeral or "homecoming. The Dozens played them at the beginning and continue to. The set is dedicated to the memory of founding member Anthony "Tuba Fats" Lacen, who passed away just a few weeks after its completion

A most unusual concept album, Funeral for a Friend visits the stations of a traditional New Orleans funeral proceeding, with gospel music serving as its thematic foil. From a parade succession to the arrival at the cemetery and the celebratory trip to the riverside, with changes in mood and tempo woven into the track selection and arrangements, the album is amazingly realized. As the band seemed to settle into a comfortable-if admittedly prolific-rut since it burst onto the scene over 25 years ago, the imagination and inspiration with which the Dirty Dozen approach such played-out standards like I Shall Not Be Moved and Amazing Grace, twisting and reconstructing them into something that transcends the conventional gospel and jazz templates upon which. they’re built, proves their standing as true giants in their genre.
