Which jazz musician was known for playing a bent trumpet?

Answer:

DIZZY GILLESPIE

On January 6, 1953, Gillespie threw a party for his wife Lorraine at Snookie's, a club in Manhattan, where his trumpet's bell got bent upward in an accident. He liked the sound so much he had a special trumpet made with a 45 degree raised bell, which became his trademark.
