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."

February 6, 2012 | Chris Thile in London Interview

Thile2012.jpgKudos to Mandolin Cafe staff writer Dan Beimborn on an excellent, insightful interview with living legend, Chris Thile. Dan had some prime moments to speak with the mega-talented mandolinist post performance in London last month. The article gives us some great behind the scenes reflections on his recent Punch Brothers production, "Who's Feeling Young Now" soon to be released, and an in-depth look at how the star acquired his incredible '24 Lloyd Loar mandolin. We also get some great understanding of how the artist continues to uncover it's sonic potential.

From the article, waxing poetic on his triumvirate of current musical projects: "One of my favorite cocktails in the whole world is the Negroni, which is equal parts Gin, Campari, and Sweet Vermouth. The record I made with Michael Daves is the Gin. BAM, a simple crisp kick in the head. The Punch Brothers is like the Campari, balanced with bitter & sweet. The Goat Rodeo Session is the Sweet Vermouth, very refined, delicate. Those three records are the Negroni of my musical life this year."
