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."

October 26, 2012 | James Condino builder's website redesign!

It's been out of commission for a while, but we're happy to see the website of Asheville, North Carolina builder, educator, and instrument restoration authority James Condino back and running again. We've had the pleasure of personally auditioning several of his instruments and spent several hours on the phone talking shop. (Literally...)

You may recall his iconic green Cricket mandolin made from all recycled materials. He's also one of the adventurous souls to tackle and become an early authority on the 10-string mandolin.

The craftsman has also written some guest articles for the JazzMando site. We hope to have him back for more in the future, but for now visit the Condino.com site for delectable mandolin eye-candy, some philosophy, and occasionally, one or two of his craft for sale.

Check out the new digs: Condino.com
