Killer Switch Anyone?

Does anyone else find it difficult to switch from jazz to classical. At my school I am lead alto in the jazz band and first chair in the Wind ensemble. I find it diffucult to switch from John Coltrane to the Caprice en Forme de Valse.

    Just a tip, if you're going from jazz rehearsal straight to wind ensemble (or jazz to legit in the practice room) switch your set ups and then warm up the new set up by playing long tones, then overtones to adjust your chops and EAR to the different set up. This worked very well for me, I was in the same boat as you for four years in my undergrad studies. selmerfan
