Last Summer I went to Chicago to take some masterclasses under Wycliffe Gordon and the Columbia College Staff and some good Chicago jazz musicians showed up. Some Cats that have been around for a long time were all using these old horns that they used so much there were only bits of lacquer still on their horns. Its really tempting to want the newest and latest super expensive horns but what is the community's thoughts on using really old horns. I was watching a Maceo Parker video on Youtube and noticed that his trumpet player had the same thing.
