“Live” For The Love of You Solo-Lamberson DD7

This is a live clip from a gig I did 5-6 years ago. I play a tenor saxophone solo using the Fred Lamberson DD7 tenor mouthpiece I had back then.  The mouthpiece is made of white acetal with a high long baffle in it that drops down into the chamber after about a half inch or so.  This is Lambersons brightest mouthpiece but I still found it fat sounding.  It can be brighter and wailin’ or you can lay back on it and get a great jazz tone.  The tune is “For the Love of You”.  Since then I have sold this mouthpiece because I found it too bright but as I listen to this clip I really like the tone of it.  This is the same mouthpiece I use on the “Let’s Get it On” video.

  1. Killer sound! Also have to give some props to Fred Lamberson. Acetal+high baffle generally seems to be the most powerful edgy combo, but with your skill and a great designed mouthpiece, it sounds nice and smooth as well.

  2. Nice!!! Love your sound on this one!!
