Synopsis: "Rejoice When You Die" documents the lively history of jazz funerals in the heyday of the late 1960s, when they were still an honor bestowed only on jazz musicians. Even more important, it is a vivid tribute to the timeless sadness and dignity, the pride and humility, the stillness and the motion, and the silence and music of this fascinating cultural ceremony. 113 photos.
