    Abstract

    This article is a study in the interrelations between ethnography, autoethnography and social world analysis as applied to a musical event – a weekly jazz residency – attended by the elderly. It illustrates the ‘dying embers’ of New Orleans revivalist jazz in the UK with reference to the author’s resocialisation into ‘classic’ New Orleans revivalist jazz by members of Liverpool’s Merseysippi Jazz Band, the longest established New Orleans revivalist jazz band in the UK.
