Recently i bought the 'Walking with Mr Lee' CD. I wonder if he is growling on all the tunes even when he plays slow ballads. Does anybody could tell me more about the Tenor setup Lee Allen played on?
See pic here:legato said:With YouTube you can stop or freeze the video. If you stop it at 1:45 he opens his mouth so you can see his MP, reed and embouchure better. Not good resolution but it looks like his lower lip is way forward. He also tilts his head and neck forward, evidently to open his throat more.
