Well, this is just my thought, but I think you need to stop listening to yourself while you are playing. You do the right thing by taping yourself. Trust your tape, it doesn't lie. The brain can only process two maybe three things at a time. If you are thinking "Song and Wind", then that doesn't leave a lot of processing space for "how do I sound." I don't think you need to change anything about your practice habits. As Dr. Jacobs once said to me, "Make statements, don't ask questions!" :)

Happy practicing!
