You are aware that Eddie Daniels is also a serious "legit" clarinetist
with the ability to control his dynamics down to a whispery-soft
altissimo, right? He plays the exact opposite type of mouthpiece from
most jazzers. His is very close, similar to a 5RV, and IIRC correctly
you play a 5JB. With that much difference, it's almost like a
different axe! With his mics on the horn, he doesn't to make volume,
he needs to control it. And he does indeed.
