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."

April 5, 2011 | In the works; Custom Jonathan Mann Baritone 5-string

We can't help but be giddy about another custom toy in the making for the JazzMando studio, a delicious 5-string electric bari-emando EM-5B (tuned GDAEB low to high) from Tennessee emando specialist, Jonathan Mann. It's our second instrument from the in-demand craftsman, and a chance for a new voice. The baritone register offers some dynamic harmonic register opportunities for jazz.

We're anticipating a modest black sunburst finish, pretty much trusting Jon to wow us with his magic again. It's great to revisit his work with his signature neck-through back; we almost feel like we helped the world discover him.

We knew him back even before he became famous...
