Sage Wisdom

"Good improvisation communicates harmonic progression melodically. Effective melodies manipulate harmonic content through the use of guide tones and preparatory gravity notes, masterfully woven in systematic tension, release, and transparent harmonic definition."

May 30, 2010 | Marcos Moletta; Gypsy Jazz on Electric Mandolin

From Rio de Janeiro, an informal but spectacular clip of some Django style jazz on a Fender 5-string electric mandolin, actually a "Guitarra Baina" in South America. 40 year-old Marcos Moletta is a talented multi-instrumentalist musician who is also a master of the Rabeca, a native Brazilian fiddle. He credits his musical influences from such diverse flavors as Jimi Hendrix, Pat Metheny, Bob Marley, Pixinguinha, Frank Zappa, and Wes Montgomery. You can see some other equally inspiring videos on his MySpace page.
