The set­ting is New Orleans, cir­ca 1880. A lone trum­pet play­er blows his horn on the side of a dirt road. But soon a fuller melody over­takes his and as it gets loud­er, a brass band appears around the cor­ner, play­ing a funer­al march as it trails behind a wood­en cas­ket. He falls in step with the pro­ces­sion, its line con­sist­ing of four oth­er men, and he plays along.
