Is there someplace that I can find audio recordings of a sax (preferably tenor) playing examples of various sounds. Meaning, can I find examples of "dark", "bright", "full", "round", etc.
All wonderful words, but for the most part I have no idea what they mean.
I just got a new YTS-62iii and I would like to get a upgrade to the standard MP. I understand MOST of my sound is me, but (and there is always a but) I also read over and over reviews that claim the MP can impact the sound produced.
I am interested in classical and I am looking for something I would call "smooth" and/or "rich". I am not sure how that fits into the "dark" "bright" etc universe.
This was the classical embouchure that I was taught on clarinet JB - like saying a French "ooo".The classical embouchure described by Larry Teal in "The Art of Saxophone Playing" and the one used and taught by Eugene Rousseau has the corners pushed in as part of the "ring" of muscles around the mouthpiece.
