"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."
We hadn't checked in on the former child prodigy for a while, but all grown up now, the amazing talents of Florida picker Josh Pinkham have been captured on this spontaneous, but creative rendition of the Radiohead classic, "Paranoid Android." It's always inspiring to see the mandolin so cleverly applied to smash pop hits.
Josh has played with some powerhouse players in his young carrer, including David Grisman, Frank Vignola, MIke Marshall, and of course his own Pinkham Family Band, a personal fave. Great to hear some inspiring sounds out of his mandolin again!
