Vulgano tips for single tongue:
Keep the tongue relaxed, like it is melting in your mouth, and make your tongue tired every day.
An old Shuebruk exercise: Rhythm--quarter, 4 sixteenths, quarter, 4 sixteenths.... Notes--a major scale, say for example, G. The exercise-- G GGGG G GGGG A AAAA A AAAA B, etc. to g, then downwards to G. Easy, huh? Aha, the mean part--we play then from A to a and back, B to b and back etc. until d to d1 (and back). Then, c to c1 and back, B to b and back, etc. until we reach our original G to g. Afterwards, the tiredness will often be felt inside the throat, where the tongue connects to the hyoid bone. Often the cheeks and corners will complain as well; not a bad thing.
Along with that develop a good double tongue, then close the gap between the double and single tongue so that a clean double tongue can be produced slower than our fastest single tongue.

Just play "My Little suede Shoes" by Charlie Parker until it is smooth.
Or time to sell some really slick bowling shoes...
