He’s dead on in these books and he’s one of the major cats. And if Dave can’t perform some of Joe Allard’s exercises well, then they’re probably over my head in this lifetime and it doesn’t matter very much anyway.

It is apparent that tone on an instrument is the first level of communication perceived by the listener, preceding stylistic and musical elements such as rhythm, melody and siund. My first experiences with Joe began as a teenager in New York City after I had studied locally with a fine teacher, Nat Shapiro, who taught me the basics of sound production, fingerings and technique.

Chapter seven covers Lieb’s thoughts on reeds and mouthpieces and has some helpful advice on these matters.

I realize now I should probably have asked this before I bought the book, but I got excited.
