Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Mellow Yellow Monday - 12/28









This is the King 2B Silversonic my father bought for me in 1963.  The bell section is Sterling Silver, with a 24 karat gold wash inside - the mellow yellow, both for the horn and these pictures.

I posted a couple pictures a few days ago, but they were on the dark side.  These were taken on a day when sunlight was streaming through my living room windows.

For more mellow yellowness, click the badge below.

I played trombone! ... it was a skill of the past, but still so.

My favorite time with it was playing in a small jazz ensemble circa 1984. Very talented group that sounded great.
