David is a brilliant human being and a great player who has contributed knowledge and art at a new educational level. This book a new edition with minor additions is meant to put any saxophonist, regardless of style on a firm footing without being at a disadvantage in the pursuit of a good tone saxophonne in the final result, enjoyment of the instrument.
