Here's a link to a great interview with Charles McPherson-it's actually been online for years but is worth checking out. He's a good player to read about and listen to as he's experimented a lot with equipment over the years and has such a beautiful sound. I posted it here as he makes some interesting points about alto sax mouthpiece/instrument combinations.

One of the many things I noticed when seeing him play live was the sheer amount of air he took when he breathing-it felt as though the entire theatre was going to be sucked into his lungs.

I used to have a recording of his called "Siku Ya Bibi" that was with strings. Unfortunately it's out of print, but at that time he was playing a Conn 6M.
check the iTunes store, they have it as a download.
