[email protected] captures Bill Evans sharing some of his saxophone playing tips.

Maintain a loose Embouchure.......You don't need to be working too hard........Give the reed room to vibrate.

Your brain handles improvisation the same way you learn a language. Learn to increase your playing vocabulary.

Start with learning a simple phrase. Work on this phrase till it sounds good. Make it sound good. Keep your phrases simple. Give your brain a chance. The simpler you make things, the better it is.

You don't have to play a million notes to sound good. You only have to make the notes you are playing sound good. Check out Miles Davies.

Emulate other players by all means. You will never sound like them but what you learn will add to your vocabulary. See other players play live.

Sound is every thing
