Music is so often the result of a convergence of disparate spirits and the accidental collision of personalities. So it is with Jody Jazz mouthpieces. In 1999, NYC Musician/Jazz Educator Jody Espina met legendary saxophonist and mouthpiece maker Santy Runyon. Runyon had been the teacher of Espina's boyhood teacher Junie Ferrell. Jody recognized Santy's unique energy, and Santy recognized Jody's spirit and thirst for knowledge, so Santy customized a mouthpiece to Jody's specifications and called it the Jody Jazz mouthpiece. Since then, Jody Jazz mouthpieces have gone on to be a feature in hundreds of music stores and on the web. Jody Jazz produces mouthpieces that offer the power and brightness that a contemporary working saxophonist needs but without sacrificing a big, full saxophone sound.
