      The Jazz Funeral is probably the most known but least understood of the New Orleans traditions.  The funeral for the perished actually takes place within a funeral home or church and follows the conventional service of the deceased denomination.  The Jazz part of the service begins outside after the funeral en-route to the graveyard for burial.     
‚Äč     While en route to the cemetary brass bands usually play somber, slow-temple hymns such as " Just a Closer Walk With Thee" or " Old Rugged Cross."  When the procession reaches the cemetary the pallbearer's will rock the casket to the brass band beat for the deceased to have one last "dance."
