"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."
June 5, 2010 | Josh Pinkham with The Frank Vignola Quintet - Luke
Your morning post-bop jazz mandolin treat from former child prodigy, now working professional adult, Josh Pinkham in this most impressive video clip of the Frank Vignola Quintet in "Luke." Josh took lessons from long time family friend Mike Marshall and his friend Chris Thile, but has developed a mandolin voice of his own. It's been great to follow him over the last decade. He comes from some good blood, his father Jeff a talented multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, and jazz vocalist mother, Terry. Last time we met up with him, their was talk of a recording project with David Grisman and his grandfather, rhythm tenor guitar expert Jerry Thomasson.
