"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."
One of our very favorite instrumental mandolin "soundscape" CD projects was Tennessee multi-instrumentalist Ethan Ballinger's "Wish Upon a Falling Star." New acoustic jam roots music with a sophisticated jazz sensibility, we haven't found too many alternative acoustic ensemble projects we've liked better. It's just great atmosphere music to tune into or just relax to in the background. We still keep it in rotation.
We came across this live YouTube recording of an early CD Release Show in Nashville four years ago. Great stuff!
