Saxappeal / Press

“Saxappeal has the sound that will melt the brick wall of discomfort and make your day pleasant; as in "Time to Unwind".”

“When Detroit Sounds Like This sat down with LaDarrel Johnson for an interview, one of the first things to happen was a show-and-tell about his instrument, custom made and engraved with his ‘Saxappeal’ emblem. A wealth of pride was evident on his face as he carefully handled his saxophone with loving attention and beamed with happiness as he talked about how it was made just for him. Johnson handles his alto saxophone in the same fashion in which he plays his music — with attention, pride, and a graceful passion.”

"In the presence of Saxappeal, I am reminded of the saying that genius is often unrecognized in its own time. Internationally known saxophonist, LaDarrel ‘Saxappeal’ Johnson, is one of Detroit's foremost musical experimenters. He has coined his particular brand of wind symphony with the term 'SaxSoul'; an eclectic mix of contemporary Jazz, Hip-Hop and R&B. It entails a combination of more up-tempo sounds, forming a spirited and soulful cocktail."

"I could definitely tell hard work & dedication was put into this mouthpiece. After speaking with Aaron Drake, I knew then that they were indeed. Each mouthpiece is personally handcrafted by him, & the dedication that he has put into each mouthpiece shows. I’m very excited about being a part of the Drake family!”
