Chickens in the City Went to Roost Several Hours
Ahead of Time
There had, it’s fair to say, been vague suggestions earlier
that the Louisiana Axeman had had some sort of links with the Mafia. New Orleans
was the first city in the United States to have a Mafia family of its own (its links with the Sicilian society go back at
least to 1879), and early twentieth century Mafiosi in both New York and New Orleans
used grocery stores as fronts for rackets and extortion (see my The First Family (London: Simon & Schuster, 2009 pp.84-5,115-16,
119). Warner, though, seems to confirm it. According to his extensive research in the newspapers and legal records of the
time, the attacks on Italian grocers attributed to the Axeman of New Orleans
were actually by-products of small wars fought between the Mafiosi of the city.
The story Warner tells is complex and, in typical Mafia fashion, largely inscrutable. It begins on 12
March 1910, when a Mafioso named Paul DiCristina attempted to murder the city’s
then boss, Vincenzo Moreci. The attempt was unsuccessful – Moreci survived, albeit with extensive wounds. Scarcely surprisingly,
DiCristina himself was then killed, on 13 April, with a shotgun, in a grocery store. The owner of the store, and the man who
killed him, was Pietro – Peter – Pepitone.
Warner’s fully-referenced telling of the story, the DiChristina murder was followed by several others involving Italian
grocers. ‘Perhaps in retaliation,’ he writes, ‘on July 13, 1910,
a man demanding money shot Joseph Manzella, who owned a grocery store and a saloon, to death in his store. Manzella’s
seventeen-year-old daughter grabbed her father’s gun and fatally shot the gunman, Giuseppe Spennazzio. Manzella
had received several Black Hand letters prior to his death. [And] after grocer Joseph Davi was beaten to death and his bride
wounded, an investigator was warned to stop looking or face serious harm himself.

Oscar "Papa" Celestine
January 1, 1884-December 15, 1954
Oscar "Papa" Celestine
was born in Napoleonville. While a young man he moved to Algiers and played cornet with the Algiers Brass Band and Henry "Red"
Allen's Excelsior Brass Band. Later he formed his own band, The Original Tuxedo Orchestra (named after the
Tuxedo Dance Hall in Storyville) in 1910
-- which included Peter Bocage, Louis Armstrong, Bebe Ridgley, Lorenzo Tio, Jr and Isidore Barbarin (guitarist Danny Barker’s
grandfather) -- and the Tuxedo Brass Band in 1911. One of the cornet players in Papa Celestine's Brass Band was Louis
"Satchmo" Armstrong. Celestine's band was known for playing wherever jazz music was needed--funerals, picnics,
or dances. In 1953, the band played for the President of the United States.
The band played at the
Tuxedo Dance Hall from 1910 to 1913, when the club was closed after the shooting.
In 1954 "Lincoln Beach opened to a throng of 10,000 eager citizens, who spilled onto the elaborately landscaped
midway and gathered around the stage where Papa Celestin's jazz band played... Source: New Orleans Magazine Pictured is
the Original Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra -- Left to Right: Bill Matthews, Guy Kelly, Papa Celestin, Jeanette Salvant, Narvin Kimball,
Joe Lawrence, Chinee Foster, Joe Rouzon, Simon Marrero, Clarence Hall by Ted Gottsegen Papa Celestin was one of the most popular
of New Orleans cornetists and considered a major player in the development of jazz. Arriving in New Orleans in 1906, Celestin
became a member of Henry Allen Sr.’s Excelsior band in 1908. In 1910 Celestin started the Original Tuxedo Jazz Orchestra
which would become one of the most enduring bands with musicians like Peter Bocage, Louis Armstrong, Bebe Ridgley, Lorenzo
Tio, Jr and Isidore Barbarin (guitarist Danny Barker’s grandfather). He began recording with his own groups for Okeh
until the depression forced him to give-up the group. During World War II he was found working in a shipyard. After the war
Celestin reformed his band and began recording for various companies and doing live broadcasts from local radion stations.
He was also a mainstay and tourist attraction on Bourbon Street until his death. In view of the tremendous contribution Celestin
made in jazz throughout his lifetime, the Jazz Foundation of New Orleans had a bust made and donated to the Delgado Museum
in New Orleans. Source: http://www.redhotjazz.com/papa.html
