okay I read a lot about practicing softly .. ie Cat Anderson soft as in whisper soft..
I get that you want your chops to be supple and respond without having to pump a ton of air to get the note going... and I get trying to produce the tone evenly without jumps in volume.
my question is more to do with the quality of the tone produced and what is the thought process and progression suppose to be.
When I play whisper soft the overtones are not as rich ... Is it going to get better just by putting in the reps and working on breath support. Are you suppose to work your embrouchure to improve the tone consciously? My gut is to not over think it but listen .. then again I have no idea
