Miguel Angel Lous on the DV Alto 8
“After listening to my teacher and mentor George Garzone, I was curious to know why he chose to use the JodyJazz mouthpiece. I have now had the pleasure of playing the DV Alto 8 and understand the flexibility and sound quality this mouthpiece offers. It’s especially great for the exploration of multi-phonics, high notes, and other sound possibilities on the instrument. The DV Alto makes it easy to interpret different musical styles such as Latin Jazz, Fusion, Funk and World Music with little effort. Thank you Jody for your scientific- mathematical research and for designing a variety of high-quality products and mouthpieces”
