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."

September 15, 2010 | Will Patton and Ninine Garcia in the Studio

We wanted to make sure you've seen this video, in case you haven't already tripped over it on the internet. New England premier jazz mandolinist, Will Patton was in Paris last fall for his pending CD project and was caught on tape prepping for a recording session with long time friend and fellow Django jazz picker, Ninine Garcia. The song is "Caporal Swing." He jokes about some of the language barrier between him and the accomplished French guitarist, "I'm ok at 'plus de fromage, s'il vous plait' but not the 'tag the outro with a minor 7 flat five.'"

We're pretty excited about this project. Every one of Will's CDs gets regular rotation in our player.
