"Presented with a sense of humor and wit, this is a wonderful compendium of available colors and extra-musical sound effects on the saxophone."
"Uell Dorig has compiled a comprehensive book on the multitude of sounds available from a saxophone, sounds that will expand your expressive palate. Congrats on a great book!"
"It's so nice to explore a book that deals with an expanded approach of expression beyond just the notes we focus on. Our personal relationships with our instruments is what fuels our ideas as improvisers. Developing a personal sound on the saxophone requires a deep study into all of the possibilities the instrument and our imaginations will take us. This book, Saxophone Sound Effects, will set you on your way."
