Even the great Phil Woods had GAS...until Bird showed him that he was wrong.
I was actually referring to Parker, since it seems like horns meant little to him, unless he was actually playing, or looking to hock them for something else. The mouthpiece in the pocket makes sense.... there has to be some comfort device, even for a talent that large.No one's immune, but I suspect that he's less susceptible.
This looks like it indicates a NY Meyer 5, switching to a VD V16 fairly recently. I can't tell the difference. Must be him.
There's also a rumor that Charlie Parker, while famous for hocking horns for drugs, kept his mouthpiece in his pocket at all times just in case.
Until he married bird's widow......until Bird showed him that he was wrong.
Before I go to sleep tonight, I promise that if you make me sound just like Phil or Bird when I wake up in the morning, then I won't buy ANYMORE horns or mouthpieces!
