Marsalis blues

Wynton Marsalis is canceling all of his summer gigs.
He has dropped his entire summer schedule because of lip problems, said Helen Small, president and CEO of the sponsoring American Pianists Association.
"We were told he's been playing too much, and his lip is blown," she said Monday.

This sounds quite serious. A professional like Marsalis would not be hindered by tired chops, so a more serious injury must be the cause. Get better, Wynton.
