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 27, 2011 | Jethro Burns at Adler House, 1985


Thirty-five minutes of undiluted mandolin joy is this video of Jethro Burns in the informal setting of the Libertyville, Illinois "Adler House." We knew about his jazz prowess on the mandolin fretboard, but the clip gives us a taste of his classical chops, as well.

Joining him on stage, our good friends (and young pups here) mandolin protoge Don Stiernberg and rhythm guitar master John Parrot in the second half of the clip.
