What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"Puffed-up cheeks, bent trumpet"
The jazz great's cheeks puffed up when he played, giving him more air for performing. His trumpet was accidentally bent in the early 50's, and he liked the sound of the damaged instrument so much that he had future horns bent in a similar fashion.
