Nicely played with the appropriate feel for this style. The reed sounds like you've got it under good control but has a very slight tendency to squawk. Can be good or bad depending on your control and point of view. There is a little brightening (higher partials) that = squawk which could be desirable, but your tone is also dark/husky. I'd be interested to hear whether YOU like the sound... or not.

Sounds great! I might try some Hemke Reeds myself.
I read somewhere that Sonny Rollins used Hemke on his Berg, so decided to try them myself.
I was pleasantly surprised by Hemke. Not too expensive, quick response and a pleasant tone, especially when new. Currently Hemke and Select Jazz are my favourite. I find them very similar with select jazz being a bit more on a bright side.
