Everybody is different. But long tones really do help in many areas. intonation, control of volume, response. phrasing K

cool idea. seems like a great player. I always wished some of the great tenors would do this so that we can copy their tone. I read in downbeat that you want to try to find recordings where the masters hold out notes and practice long tones along with those notes. I put those long notes from greats on loop and do long tones to those notes sometimes.

If you like Tranes tone you could copy equinox, for henderson Beatrice, or getz for that matter. Sonny did lots of ballads. But copying and overtones are key
