Of all the players, his embouchure most closely resembles that of a clarinet embouchure. See how the corners turn up. All of the others have the corners turned down more or less. I have added a few more photos to the post that I missed before.

that's what I was taught also, I had a bit difficulty with this because I transferred from clarinet to sax (I had to play one year clarinet first...) So I my teacher said I could practice it with an empty beer bottle, if you "whistle" on a bottle like a panflute and you should have the correct embouchure for sax...
