BRITAIN HARRODS“I wouldn’t trade these memories for all the doubloons in Mardi Gras,” said Robert Peri, who said he spent Sunday night on the balcony of his French Quarter hotel, playing “When the Saints Come Marching In” on his coronet.

I thought a coronet was a crown, and a CORNET a trumpet-like instrument.
