    Regarding vibrato -- I think the "old school" "new school" stuff is a bunch of nonsense -- good players will have both types of vibrato plus one more -- diaphragmatic vibrato and will mix them all together as the need arises. Some instances work best with a hand vibrato, some work best with a jaw vibrato, some work best with diaphragmatic vibrato, and others work best with a combination of two or more of these.

    Of course, they all have to be practiced alone and in combinations in order for them to feel natural to the player and to sound natural to the audience.

    Dang. Unbelievable! Gorgeous sound. And it is amazing that a kid of that age understands the proper use of vibrato. I can't listen anymore or I'll have to turn my horns into fower pots.

    Kenny G cries about that problem . . . . all the way to the bank. ;-)

    Does "low impact" mean long tones, lip slurs, pedal tones and the like?

    I use lip vibrato because I feel that using the hand only exacerbated my mouthpiece pressure problem. For me... your mileage may vary. I still use the hand vibrato out of necessity when it's called for in things like dixieland.
