And music was everywhere in his city -- dancing out of doorways, singing on street corners, best of all there was the great Joe Oliver's cornet crying wah-wah for all to hear.

But when at last he did, his cornet would send music spiraling up into the New Orleans night sky like a spinning top gone crazy.
