Claude Lakey Mouthpiece for Jazz?

I'm loooking to get a new sound out of my Yamaha Pro sax, and I was wondering if a Claude Lakey hard rubber tenor mouthpiece would be a good choice? The sound I'm looking for is sort of like a zoot Sims/ Stan Getz sound, and I need a mouthpiece that compliments the sax well. If the Lakey is a good choice, what facing should I get? Or if it isn't, then what recomendations on mouthpieces do any of you have? Thanks.

      those guys both played bergs and links during their careers. check those out first! The Claude lakey would be too bright, I agree. I've played them, but find them prone to squeak - A LOT!
