    Bless you O Wiseone. People should know their history before they post. I had the pleasure of meeting Dizzy twice,. Not only was he a great trumper player he was an even better person:thumbsup:

    You didn't happen to hear it right from Dizzy himself about the story behind his horn?

    (Wouldn't it be funny if Dizzy told everyone a different story just for sh**s and giggles)

    "yes it was an accident, when drunk dizzy sat on it during some wild party. Than he accused airport staff for bending his trumpet in transportation. And he kept it because bent trumpet was catching the imagination of the crowds, it was marketing move. Stating bent trumpet made different sound is complete ignorance. The sound was just the same.

    Besides it was chano pozo, juan tizol and walter fuller and later arturo sandoval that made musical magic. Dizzy was an entertainer and a great band manager, but musical souls were those mentioned before"



    We just got rid of two trolls. Please don't take their place by posting such nonsense. You don't know what you are talking about. You know nothing about jazz, jazz trumpet, Dizzy, Bebop, the history of bebop, Dizzy's horn, how it got bent, music in general. One wonders why people post such drivel. What is the measure of a troll? Why do they do it? Beats me.

    I trying to figure out why I even respond to such idiocy.

    Okay folks....we've got ourselves another troll here. So I'm going to suggest two things. 1) everybody ignore his posts and 2) FrankMike or whoever the xxxxxxxxxxxx, okay?

    can I ask what a "troll" is? I don't think I've heard this term here before.

    Does anyone know what actually happened? I know of lots of stories all of them are likely but probably none of them true.
