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."

July 18, 2012 | Aaron Weinstein; Fine and Dandy

May not be the greatest fidelity in videography, but the playing is stunningly good, and what we've come to expect from mandolin chord melody legend, Aaron Weinstein. His orchestrations are almost literally that, an orchestra in only eight strings. Love the walking bass!

Enjoy yet another dazzling arrangement in this interpretation of the 30's Broadway pop hit, "Fine and Dandy." For us Boomers, the tune is often associated with the late night television magic act performed on Johnny Carson in the 70's by Art Metrano, which consists of an inept magician performing inane tricks while chanting "duh-duh-da, duh-duh-DA DA!" over and over.

Magic, indeed.
