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."

February 17, 2013 | MANdolinMAN quartet on Vimeo

Here's an exciting video from across the pond. Belgium's mandolin quartet "MANdolinMAN" takes a different direction in a Jobim Bossa Nova standard, "Água de beber." The music of their first album, "Old Tunes, Dusted Down'" was an interesting blend of European and North American folk traditions, performed with exquisite control and engaging dynamics.


We are looking forward to a February 2013 CD release of their latest project. For now, enjoy this video (title to be announced):
