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."

The Eichers continue to be an acoustic string jazz favorite around here. We mentioned the Oklahoma ensemble last fall when they released their debut CD Dance of the Gypsies. The oldest member of the group Shelby Eicher is a long time veteran of the southwestern US Texas Swing scene, himself a National Hall of Fame fiddler as well as a virtuoso swing mandolinist. He's joined by three sons, Nathan, Paul, and equally talented mandolinist, Isaac.

We can' recommend the CD highly enough!
