"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."
Some players are truly freaks of nature. Such is the case with one of our favorite mandolinists in the world, Evan Marshall. Not only is he a brilliant technician on the instrument, he's an amazing musician, and all around nice guy. (We had the pleasure of spending most of a weekend chauffeuring him at a Mandofest festival a few years ago.)
Promise us you'll never pass on an opportunity to see Evan play in person!
