Reason: cleaning up language
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.

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.

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.
Be sure Brain is engaged before putting Mouthpiece in gear.
