Thanks, Glenda, for posting this link. Truly fascinating and obviously the result of major research-especially around the early cornet and trumpet players. Besides finding out more about Bix and various other heroes, I was pleased to see my university trumpet teacher, Vincent Cichowicz, listed. I actually never knew what equipment he used until now. Mr. Cichowicz besides being an excellent orchestral trumpeter was a fantastic teacher and a big Bix and Jack Teagarden fan (we used to discuss these two in lessons quite often).
