Some sort of New Orleans band being echoed back there, or whatever it is. It just adds to the haunting memory of what used to be there before the flood.
Hey! I just noticed this last night too. My car stereo system is really good (factory Honda), but with all the background noise (engine, road), with all the times I'd listened to the album/this song in my car, I'd never heard it. I was listening last night on my computer, where I have a pro-quality external sound box that I use for my little home sound studio (recording my own music), hooked up to some vintage-1980's wooden-box floor speakers. Everything sounds way better on there than in any other equipment I have access to. And I had copied the whole album onto my computer in uncompressed WAV file format... for future use in transcribing... (so now I can listen to it without hearing the CD-ROM drive whirring). And my computer is silent too, and my hard drive nearly so. So with no other noise in the room and a really good sound converter, the accordion was there in the background and really surprised me! Especially because it's not
the first time I've listened to the album in my room with that setup either! I've also noticed some really really quiet high-pitched piano parts elsewhere in the song (near the beginning). Seems like there is a lot in that recording and we may only notice everything upon many repeated listens.
