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."

August 4, 2010 | Contrasting mandolinists: Camp faculty Don Stiernberg and Dave Harvey

Terrific impromptu duo performance captured on video with familiar JazzMando favorite Don Stiernberg and Gibson master luthier and longtime bluegrass specialist David Harvey playing "Swing 42" at Mandolin Camp North in Ocean Park, Maine, earlier this spring. The tune was written as Django Rheinhardt's personal tribute to the joyous swing of one of his biggest influences, Louis Armstrong, originally recorded by the Gypsy Jazz legend back in 1941.

Don and Dave perform magnificently, converging two entirely different worlds into a solid, unified musical collaboration. Devoid of a stagnant pentatonic betrayal, the bluegrass master swings aptly into the jazz realm, and of course, Don teases the audience with many familiar jazz riffs in his improvisation.

Good stuff!
