Interesting article

The Newark Star Ledger has an article that details items up for auction from the estate of Dizzy Gillespie:

The memorabilia range from the spectacular to the everyday. Among the former is the hybrid trumpet, called a "pudgy" -- part trumpet, part cornet, part fluegelhorn -- designed by Bob DeNicola of Trenton. Holter said it might fetch $5,000 to $10,000.
