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."

December 30, 2011 | Peace: Jason Anick

We're huge fans of the young New England acoustic string phenomenon Jason Anick. His mandolin skills are superb, but he's even better known for his swing fiddle talents.

He's one of those musicians to study closely, his improvisations are a magical weaving of science and art. See how masterfully he weaves the basic mathematical elements of music: scales, arpeggios, motifs, and lets his inner muse create wonderful lines and expressive phrases in this Horace Silver classic, "Peace."
