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."

January 2, 2013 | Minnesota Video Vault: Jethro And Friends


The following 1984 recording was recently made available from Minnesota Public TV. For 39 years, Jethro Burns was half of one of the greatest comedy teams of all time, Homer and Jethro. Take a look back at his history, his comedy, and get ready to laugh out loud. 55 minutes of amazing playing including a couple young pups Don Stiernberg and John Parrott (yes they misspelled the latter).
