I've noticed that some players, in addition to changing dynamics, will change the amount of focus in their tone to aid in expression. Richard Stoltzman does this a lot. Kalman Berkes does it probably even more. I really like the sound of this effect, but I can't easily recreate it in my own playing. Clearly, you have to be very sensitive to what minute changes in embouchure do to your sound, but I'm wondering if anybody has any advice beyond this. I'm having trouble accomplishing this, especially without messing up my tuning or changing my volume.
