Ok I am a woodwind player , clarinet ,flute ,dig, recorders,etc Picked up sax two months ago and I am doing real well . Have good tone able to play all my songs . The disturbing part is when i play the alto sax my throat puffs out !! I am ready to give up the sax as I am freaked out . I do circular breathing but I have not had this issue with any of my other woodwinds.
