Personally, I rather like Sue Terry's description of saxophone sounds. Here is an article Sue wrote for SOTW. She describes three components to a saxophone player's tone: the edge (the main part of the tone), the shadow tone (a very pure sound behind the edge, sounds like a sine wave), and th overtones (high pitched buzzing above the main tone). She describes how focusing on these different areas of the tone can influence a player's sound.
I have tried many times to hear what Sue Terry calls the "shadow tone", but I didn't hear it, neither in my own sound or while listening to others.

How do you do this?
