I have a tape with Rahsaan where he starts talking about playing with Miles and wanted him to go back to playing the muted trumpet and also asked...."Why do you need all of this electricity?" Funny as hell. He then proceeds to play "Bye Bye Blackbird" on trumpet with the mute and rumored to have a sax mouthpiece. The sound is amazingly like a...well....muted trumpet. I'm trying to figure out which Rahsaan recording this is from. Would anyone on the list know?

The first insistence that I ever heard of a trumpet with a saxophone 
mouthpiece was on Eddie Harris' " Live at Newport cd, on Atlantic (1970).
