"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 mentioned Chris Thile in our recent Nickel Creek tribute last week, and found a terrific audio snippet in the tail end of the inaugural Watkins Family Hour podcast available on iTunes. It was great to hear the trio briefly reunited for three tunes. (Listen free from your iTunes account. NC Songs are last 5-6 minutes).
We also enjoyed watching the following compilation video of the Largo concert series, Watkins Family Hour where the remaining 2/3 of the trio, Sean and Sarah, strut their stuff with the likes of John C. Reilly, Jackson Browne, and Fiona Apple.
