The DVD is indeed different, and as was noted here is not intended as a playalong. I’m hoping it will come today or tomorrow.

Liebman’s book is great. Click here for more information. It’s a lot of info packed into a dsvid skinny book, and definitely worth multiple readings. The whole book is great, I think you’ll really get a lot out of it. This was especially true for understanding the significance of the overtone exercises which are central to these concepts since they reinforce the principles through concrete examples.

David is a brilliant human being and a great player who has contributed knowledge and art at a new educational level. You know how it is All times are GMT.

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. I especially liked chapter 7. What have people’s experiences with this book been? This is section in my humble opinion contains the secret of a good sax sound.

I think its a great introduction to the Joe Allard concept.


If bad habits lead to unnecessary tensions, there is less likelihood that the performer can discover his or her persona on the instrument, let alone perform at a high level, especially if you factor in all the normal considerations which go into playing music. I just ordered this book off of eBay last week, it should be here sometime in the next couple of days.

A real awakening occurred a few years after studying with Joe when I realized how the tone of the great artists all had in common certain characteristics: Much of the information reflects my experiences from studying with the master, Mr.

What Would Mingus Deveoping Of course after the main principles are understood, each musician should and will naturally customize the concepts to fit their own personality, needs and technique.


He’s dead on in these books and he’s one of the major cats. It is my contention that for a mature and serious student, understanding the reasoning behind a concept goes further than mere imitation and repetition for improving skills. Originally Posted by dirty.
