hello (cornet) my (fickle) friend

The cornet is in the wind (dans le vent).

Dave Douglas and Spider Monkey Stories play it. DD asks the big question.

All this prompted me to put on a CD that I've had for a few months, but not really listened to: the Warren Vaché/Bill Charlap duet 2Gether, the only album I have with either. It's a standards set, but from the very first notes of "If I Should Lose You," Vaché makes clear that it's the real deal.

Finally, will the instrument jump the shark when someone uses Cornette in a title?
