For a jazz musician, art is made in the moment. Paul Smoker, who has spent his life playing the trumpet, lived in much the same way, without much thought for what the future consequences might be. After decades of long nights on the road in smoke filled clubs and bars, that life finally caught up with Paul. His doctor told him that his heart was failing him, but he wouldn't be eligible for a transplant. Instead, it would be some modern technology and a lot of trust in his doctor that would save his life.
