At the risk of double-posting, I did place a post on the referenced thread, and here it is. As for animosity, since I and many of my colleagues teach both classical saxophone studio and jazz in ensemble, combo, and improv class settings, we would have to engage in some pretty serious self-loathing for that to be the case. Quite the contrary, I embrace both genres whole-heartedly, and am very interested in the differences, both obvious and subtle, in tonal production, articulation, etc., between the two. I work to prepare my students for success in all areas, and I've found that to be true of most of my colleagues. It's all about flexibility--both conceptual and instrumental.
