About This Listing

Alphonse Mouzon was a jazz fusion drumming legend. He was an influence to many famed musicians such as Questlove of The Roots, and John Bonham of Led Zeppelin. In addition to touring and making about 20 albums as a solo artist, Alphonse was a founding member of Weather Report, and he recorded and toured with an extensive list of some of the biggest names in music. Alphonse passed on an impressive collection of vintage instruments and gear to his family, and they have decided to sell much of it through Astound Sound.

 This synth was owned by the jazz legend Alphonse Mouzon, and he played it on the tracks "

The Next Time We Love", which featured Herbie Hancock on piano.

This synth was sitting in a road case for years, and much of the foam disintegrated and stuck to the device, but it has been cleaned up pretty well. There are some scratches on the device from both touring and the cleanup process. The device has just had the main board repaired, the key bushings replaced, and I am in the process of refurbishing the voice cards and power supply.
