There was a time when you could buy 1950s Elkhart Conn 88Hs for $500. Nobody wanted them because everybody wanted 42Bs with Thayer conversions. Tastes change.

Re: Curtis Fuller appreciation thread

Haven't heard lately. I think he's teaching in one of the Carolinas and I heard he had some health challenges. I love Curtis' playing. I really enjoyed his solo on "Blue Lawson" from his record New Trombone. I have my students transcribe that one.
