    Any mouthpiece can be bent to suit the player's needs. However, it should be done by a qualified technician to make sure no vital parts of the mouthpiece are damaged.

    Miles had that bent so that he could point his horn downward more easily in his later era. Part of his image, I would think.
    Usually, I've seen mouthpieces bent so that the player, who's normal position would have the horn angling downward, allows him to point the instrument forward, compensating for his tendency to play downward; just the opposite of Mile's purpose.
