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 26, 2011 | 10 Questions for Will Patton

We were privileged recently with an opportunity to administrate an interview with JazzMando legend, Will Patton in the Mandolin Cafe "Questions" series. The multi-instrumentalist performer, bandleader, composer, and clinician registers very high on our list of contemporary jazz mandolin influences and justifiably so. In addition to frequent email correspondence, we've been able to meet in person several times in Austin, Texas and Burlington, Vermont, including an enlightening workshop.

On the verge of releasing his fifth CD (we can't wait!), his music is in frequent rotation (even his earlier classics) around the JazzMando studios. His songs are both infectious and contagious, it's simply impossible not to like. Now you get a chance to get a little inspiration and information directly from the man himself.
