It’s a lot of info packed into a very skinny book, and definitely worth multiple readings.

This book is the result of several decades of experience as a saxophonist and teacher. Results 1 to 20 of Just ordered the book from Dorn’s site. I realize now I should probably have asked this before I bought the book, but I got excited.

I like the presentation and exercises so much, I’ve used them continually for the last 12 years or so. Page 1 of 4 1 2 3 4 Last Jump to page: Liebman’s book is great. 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: I’m hoping it will come today or tomorrow.

I would recommend getting the video. 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 harmony.

Dave Liebman Are you kidding??!! I think its a great introduction to the Joe Allard concept. 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.

It’s like having a long and comprehensive lesson with Liebman; provides concrete, sonic illustrations of stuff in the book; and is worth every penny of the 60 bucks it costs. BUY IT- ya won’t be sorry.

This is a good representaion of Joe Allard’s concepts of tone production- Joe Allard doesn’t get much credit, and its hard to listen to Liebman’s somewhat flawed demonstrations of some of the concepts on the video tape that accompanies the book, but since Allard is now passed on, if you can’t study with one of Joe Allard’s students like Victor Morosco this is the next best thing.

I’ll check out the DVD after recovering from the last few weeks of spending. If you take what Lieb says seriously and experiment with his suggestions, you’ll love what you get out of it in the long run.

The whole book is great, I think you’ll really get a lot out of it. Originally Posted by BeerBatter.
