Gregory W. Yasinitsky on JodyJazz Mouthpieces

“After trying JodyJazz for fifteen seconds, I knew I had to buy JodyJazz mouthpieces for all of my horns. There are the fabulous JodyJazz mouthpieces, and then there are all the rest. None can compare to JodyJazz. JodyJazz mouthpieces are simply the greatest mouthpieces in the universe! I am proud to play JodyJazz, the mouthpieces played by the greatest saxophonists in the world.”
