JodyJazz George Garzone Signature Model - Tenor
Savannah, GA………JodyJazz Inc, one of the world’s leading saxophone mouthpiece manufacturers has announced the addition of two new models to their recently launched GIANT Tenor range of mouthpieces. Working with world-renown Tenor Saxophonist George Garzone, the company has developed the GIANT Tenor 9* and 10* models both of which will be launched as George Garzone “Signature” models.
Introduced early in 2014, the JodyJazz GIANT Tenors were the first saxophone mouthpieces to combine the shape of a hard rubber mouthpiece with the precision of metal. Constructed from Anodized Aluminum and made on the company’s five-axis CNC mill in their factory in Savannah GA, the GIANT Tenors are warm sounding high-performance Tenor mouthpieces with an extraordinarily big, full, rich and timeless sound. Already hailed as a truly revolutionary mouthpiece, the GIANT Tenors have rapidly been embraced by leading Tenor players from across the globe such as Gaoyang Li in China, Rodrigo Bento in Brazil, Xose Miguelez in Spain and Arno Haas in Germany. Launched with 6*, 7*, 8 and 8* tip openings, the new GIANT George Garzone Signature models expand this selection to include 9* and 10*.
“I've been playing the JodyJazz HR* hard rubber for years and thought I would never look at another mouthpiece, but when Jody invited me to the factory to work with him on the larger tip openings for the new GIANT Tenors, I was intrigued.” Said George Garzone. “Many years ago we'd worked together to develop the facing curve on my HR* Tenor 10* and we applied the same principles to the new GIANT Tenor 9* and 10*. Jody's facing curve makes these larger tip openings much easier to play. The metal mouthpiece with the hard rubber shape is the perfect mix for me. The colors in the sound of the GIANT are amazing and I love the way I can lean into it to shape my sound.”
“George Garzone is one of my favorite Sax players and in my opinion one of the greatest Tenor players of all time. He is inarguably one of the greatest living Tenor players today.” Said JodyJazz President, Jody Espina. “Larger tip openings give you more harmonics in the sound and a darker tone. The larger distance allows the reed to vibrate further, generating more harmonics. I knew these characteristics would truly lend themselves to the inherent qualities of the GIANT Tenors but larger tip openings are more difficult to play and require more control and practice. So I was determined to develop larger tip openings to offer in the GIANT range that would be easier to play and working with George I’m proud to say we’ve more than achieved that goal.”
