I don't know about mouthpiece, but IIRC from "Bird Lives", the biographer said he was notorious for using the hardest reeds he could get.  Normally a hard reed would give a sax a soft, mellow tone, like Lester Young's; so the relatively "screaming" tone he could get sometimes with that hard reed means he must have been blowing that horn REALLY hard.  Apparently it was a known thing at the time, and it's one of the many reasons musicians were in awe.

Fritz Jackson

as a sax player, playing on harder of reeds in order to achieve a sound other than breathy and strained is an abject waste of your time. im sure he bought hard reeds if not so that he could shave them and fix them himself since premade reeds have always been a detriment to your sound. get ur ass a reed geek and there's a great diagram in the art of saxophone playing that will show you where to cut and shave and trim reeds for particular sound adjustments. a amateur using 3 reeds might be impressed by stuff like that before they realize that pros who use 4s are shaving mm off their reeds to make them sound better.

Just ask a music major they think they know it all. Give us all a break gurugeorge. Sa y Guru, How do we know that's Fats on trumpet, must be the valve oil.

I don't know about woodwind mouthpieces, Don't ask me about a certain trombone mouthpiece it's all according to oris construction, lube on the slide, do I like an old Beucher, Conn, or Bach? My brass girl is a restored Bach Model 6 tenor T-bone (1935) with a Bach 12 mouth piece. I've read so many comments about what someone plays, someone that can play can make a 50 y/o Bundy horn sound good. It's talent, practice, and don't give up because you love your girl & she doesn't like what you play. Gotta fall in love with a girl okay what's the pref.) & your instrument and the music that is in your soul, it not, it's a terrible thing to feel smothered as an artist I know. Me= impov jazz=my horn and piano+ memories of fellowship with wonderful jazz musicians/singers who to me our hearts were one. I miss those times.
