Re: Good Tenor Sax For Jazz
10M's are great jazz horns, though Selmers are more resistant which some people like.
My horn of choice for jazz is actually a C-Melody. I'm primarily an alto player, so using a JJ A55 works great for me. My tenor embouchre control has a LOT to be desired. The C-Mel doesn't project very much, however. I absolutely love the tone I get out of it - it's just not very loud. Perfect for church when we do gospel/rockin' songs. I could blast the veneer right off the lectern with my 10M/JJ T55, but that's not really my bag.
Upside/downside of playing a C-Mel is the music may or may not be written in that key.
