    Sachmo Syndrome... He did play... but not with the same endurance he had as a young lad.

    I still don't see what this has to do with either the original post or how it's not stating pretty much the obvious regarding practically any trumpeter who either lives long enough and/or lives a hard life during the years that he does live. But for whoever wants to keep the topic alive, enjoy!

    I think this does apply to the main topic... Playing high C 200 times may not be kind to the lips. That is the kind of fatigue that breaks down muscle. I hope this breaths new life into the topic.

    I saw a video of a live performance where Armstrong told the audience that in the next piece of music he was going to play 200 high Cs and he did. It was obviously a "house" move of his.

    That's funny! If you have proper breath support AND have worked to develop that range, it shouldn't be a problem. Had to reread the OP cause I thought, DHC (would take Maynardesque chops)!
