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."

March 25, 2012 | An Evening in the Village: The Music of Bela Bartok

Schepps.jpg We've mentioned Jake Schepps here on the site in a 2007 review of his project with mandolinist Matt Flinner, Ten Thousand Leaves.

Just a heads up, in celebration of Bela Bartok's 131st birthday you can download the latest album of the forward-thinking banjo sensation for free today only, 3/25/12. The album features the Matt Flinner Trio (plus Schepps), Grant Gordy (of the DavidGrisman Quintet), Ben Sollee and more.
