Dick Oatts on “Woodwind Doubling…”

“I have been a friend and fan of Ed Joffe for 40 years and I feel he is one of the world’s most knowledgeable and dedicated woodwind specialists. He defines what it means to be called a “complete musician.” I feel his recent “Woodwind Doubling” book is the most comprehensive study on the art of Saxophone, Flute, and Clarinet doubling in existence. This information is invaluable and should be in every aspiring reed player’s musical library. I only wish it had been available in my earlier years. This is the most tangible work ever done on this topic and will always prove to be a valuable reference in my teaching Studio at Temple University and wherever/whomever I might be in a position to guide.”
