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."

January 1, 2011 | New Year. Resolution...

We all have things we want to accomplish in the new year, goals to set and achieve, and it's usually the simple, focused ones that get accomplished. One of ours for 2011 is to revisit our "Professional's Sound Lab," the page of audio tracks we've set up to support the Getting into Jazz Mandolin book and pester some more of our favorite professionals for some more entries. We did pretty well right off the bat as you can see below, but it's time to expand the rich ear candy that can make this book an even better experience for the hundreds of customers who have made the investment of money and time.

Check out these and some of the other helpful 'ii V7 I' and Turnaround tracks recorded by premier jazz mandolinist, Don Stiernberg and New Orleans multi-instrumentalist John Eubanks.
