    It all comes back to the concept of UP. My take on this is - those astronaut blokes were OUT, not UP - you go IN towards the centre of the Earth, you go out away from the surface of the Earth, so these blokes were OUT not UP. In fact, UP is a very loose concept alltogether. So there's had to be the OUTEST most note ever hit.

    My personal top note was a high F in La Paz. We made a big mistake playing a concert the same day after flying in with a helicopter. A day or two to get used to the very thin air would have been much more sensible. I played almost the whole concert with tunnel vision.........

    Some of our members accuse you of still having tunnel vision!

    I constantly play notes so high no one can hear them.

    My highest note was in the Rockies of Colorado. Passed out and took out the entire row of bleachers behind me my first week there. That's the fate of takin a low land Cincinnati boy, and suddenly putting him into a Colorado Rockies Big Band! But I acclimated, and I later played a Big Band gig at "The Stanley" in Estes Park and under the influence of three gin and tonics at that.

    My highest note was around 3000 feet, and would routinely tack a high c# (the one above the staff notated with five ledger lines under it) after the c#" octave slur in Tower of Power's What is Hip in that space just before the vamp. No problem. What made me pass out was taking part of TOP's In the Slot up an octave after drinking some punch the fraternity we were playing for had available. Fell straight over backwards, but my horn didn't get hurt.

    My horn(s) were not so lucky. I dented the one I was holding and fell on the other - pancake city. Fortunately I found the acquaintance of a gifted oriental artesian that made things all right again, horn wise and spiritually. Uommmmm.
