NEW YORK -- Some jazz fans are devoted to the very end.
At the Woodlawn Cemetery in the Bronx, so many jazz enthusiasts want to be buried near the graves of such greats as Miles Davis and Duke Ellington that the cemetery is developing new plots to meet the demand.
The cemetery is building about 2,275 new burial plots between the grave of Latin music star Celia Cruz and the so-called Jazz Corner, the area where musicians Davis, Ellington, Lionel Hampton and Illinois Jacquet are buried.
Earlier this year, the cemetery opened up 70 burial plots behind Davis's grave in Jazz Corner, separate from the new development, and almost all of them have already been sold.
