I am always insanely curious about Jan Garbarek's tone production. He ends this song by playing a rythm motif whith his breath, not creating a tone. However, he seems to be energizing the reed somehow.
When I try to do it at home I can't, at all. Can anybody replicate this and explain how it's done?

Not sure if that's what he does but you loosen your embouchure completely and just breathe into the MPC instead of pushing air into it. It's hard to explain in detail but it is not that difficult to do. Kind of like you are warming up your MPC and neck without actually playing the notes.
