Be sure Brain is engaged before putting Mouthpiece in gear.
Now that's being cool under pressure! (Pun intended)
I have the album and it is indeed extraordinary.
Wiseman2 thank you for your impressive recording! This will be my last respose to my original post "Topping Off The Lungs", I hope someone benefits by it. I have enjoyed the conversation. Good luck to all!!!

you obviously have not looked around very much here otherwise you would have seen how many experienced players participate and the nature of the threads. All threads are created equal. Good advice catches on, other types are discussed at length and not everything from accomplished players is accepted as gospel simply because it does not scale to other musicians.
It makes little difference how many people you or I have studied under, when teaching one on one many things are communicated without having to express them. Over the internet we have a different experience. There is much greater room for "misunderstanding". Why should we be "required to do "homework" when blogging with you on the internet. Do your posts not stand on their own content?
In your case and original post, you recommended sniffing, which in my professional opinion clearly is not a replacement for a proper breath. The dangers of "sniffing" (additional tension, loss of rhythm...) show that your idea has its "problems". You have not been able to clear that up in the course of this thread and now we are supposed to feel sorry because we do not meet your expectations?
I am sorry that you are for the second time disappointed and not coming back, but I guess that comes with the territory.
I have closed the thread as you are no longer available here for clarification. If you want it opened up again, PM me.
Good luck sniffing.

Whenever I feel blue, I start breathing again.
