Anyone heard of this Japanese group called Dimension Jazz? The sax player plays a very bright and compact sound on alto that I like. I am considering buying a Codera Alto from WW&BW since it's so cheap. Would the Codera produce a similar sound? I know the mouthpiece is a huge factor in sound production, but some horns are more compact sounding than others.

BTW, I am playing a amazing B&S tenor series 2001, so I have no doubt that B&S makes great saxes, but it might not be compact enough for me in the sound I'm looking for in alto.

much of what you are hearing as compacted sound is produced by studio and sound reinforcment techniques-electronic voodoo

Alto,

I thought they were called Dimension Jazz because MP3.com labeled them as "Dimension Jazz", but I guess they made a mistake becuase it's just "Dimension" on their own official website. It's really too bad that I can't find any of their CD's in stores here in Vancouver, so all the songs I've got are MP3s, only about 20 of them.

Rockmon,

Try to get their first CD, title 'La Mars'. I have almost 10 CD from them but this is the best one.
