I think that this sentence in Charters' book has suffered from poor
proofreading and makes sense only if you remove, or ignore, the
word "trombonist." My apologies to those subscribers to whom this must
all be very opaque, but there are one or two typos in Sam Charters'
Trumpet Around the Corner.
May I add to those already expressed my fervent hopes for the eventual
publication of the collected, or even selected, writings of Tony
Standish? This would make a wonderful book.
