I would ask that you clarify your question. Do you mean

1. the air pressure built up inside the mouth when you blow on the mouthpiece, or
2. the muscular pressure of the lips around the mouthpiece when forming the embouchure?

These are two separate and distinct elements of playing. The term "pressure in the mouth" is quite vague.

As far as I know, Joe Allard didn't write any books about saxophone playing although there have been articles written about his teaching style and concepts. I second the suggestion to get the Art of Saxophone Playing by Larry Teal. It will be the best money you ever spend as a saxophone player.
