Jazz guitarist is being remembered as a great musician and friend.

On Friday, Dozens attended his funeral at Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church on Trulley at Needleton. It is located right off the Gulf Freeway, just south of downtown.

Long was the last surviving member of The Ink Spots which was a rhythm and blues group that rose to fame in the 1930s.

Huey Long died last week. He was 105-years-old.
