JodyJazz Inc has announced that Tenor Saxophone titan JD Allen has joined the JodyJazz family of artist endorsers.

JD Allen’s mouthpiece choice is the JodyJazz GIANT Tenor 8.

“We are very pleased to welcome JD Allen as a JodyJazz Endorser Artist,” said Jody Espina, founder and president of JodyJazz. “JD is one of the most important new voices on Tenor Sax to have hit the Jazz world in recent years. He has a unique and instantly recognizable sound and I am so proud for JodyJazz to be a part of that. There is so much more music to come from JD and we are excited to hear him develop and to support him in what is sure to be amazing career.”

“A giant among mouthpieces- my JodyJazz Giant 8 makes it easier to express honest human emotions, which is the ultimate goal for any artist; translating the four basic human emotions of happiness, fear, anger and sadness - onto his or her horn,” said JD Allen. “This mouthpiece is helping me realize this goal.”
