Thanks John, I haven’t read the Phillip Farkas book, but the points you raise are exactly what concerned me with converting to a dry placement.

I’m aware of Kurt Thompson’s youtube output but have never taken up the offer of lessons with him. And just to be clear the player wasn’t advocating I change but as he’d only ever played with a dry placement – and does a lot of Dizzy-like bebop playing – it made me wonder whether there were benefits. However right now I need I’m revising Greg’s approach to ensure i’ve understood 100%.

Whilst on Kurt – I have used his “no pressure” lip slur idea and also the exercise of placing to either sides of the mouth. The latter does work-out the muscles, and may have some benefit, if not overused.
