So I'm reading the May issue of DB and there is an article on the inauguration (the Beat, pg. 13) and how it was celebrated with Jazz. There is a pic of Wynton shaking hands with President Obama. Wynton is holding a .... dare I say it... a "conventional horn".
This is probably hearsay, but I remember him having chop problems a year or so ago.... has he gone so far as to quite playing Monette equipment? I'm not trying to START a rumor.... just asking if anyone has any clarification on the subject.
Hope all is well and gigs are plentiful!
