    CRS is one of two things that I know either Congenital Rubella Syndrome or Can't Remember S*** syndrome. I'm opting for the 2nd option because Miles never showed signs of the Rubella..

    I always wondered how boxing affected Miles' playing. I mean, he doesn't seem like the type who would avoid taking a punch to the mouth. Of course, maybe I don't understand sparring of the sort that he would of done, maybe that doesn't involve the face too much. But hey, I'm not complaining about the sound.

    Although I adore Clifford, and would give my firstborn child for his technique and facility, listen to the Night in Tunisia cadenza on the beginning and the end--I think it's the one recorded the night he died. It's an amazing, amazing, solo. (Actually, there's an entire scene of "Sideman," the play, that is just three trumpet playrers listening to it). But the high notes at the end of the cadenza sound like they really really hurt.

    It's not the night he died. I think it is a week or two prior.

    What is C.R.S.? I think one of the great teachers hung a horn from the ceiling on a string and practiced playing high and low without pressure, or as little as possible. I guess the technique delayed "rag-lip". What should I do? I'm a 64 year young returning player still at the advanced beginner stage with a dream to develope Jazz Chops before the last note.

    C.R.S. is meeting a person at least ten times, and not remembering ever having met them before.

    As to getting Jazz Chops......find some players and start playing the music.
    Blues in Bb, some "I Got Rhythm" based tunes, and a few ballads....That's the South Philly way. Work all the while on your basics. Scales,chords and learning new tunes.
