Alphonse Mouzon was a jazz fusion drumming legend. He was an influence to many famed musicians such as Questlove of The Roots, and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin. In addition to touring and making about 20 albums as a solo artist, Alphonse was a founding member of Weather Report, and he recorded and toured with an extensive list of some of the biggest names in music. Alphonse passed on an impressive collection of vintage instruments and gear to his family, and they have decided to sell much of it through Astound Sound.
This trumpet is from the estate of the legendary musician, Alphonse Mouzon. It is at least from 1964, if not earlier, as per the engraving "BD of ED NY 1964". It is unknown what year Alphonse acquired it, but I am sure he had it for many. It appears to be missing the button for one of the valves, but we have just ordered some new ones and will add photos of that later.
