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."

April 15, 2013 | Will Patton Quartet; Jitterbug Waltz


If he's not the best, he's certainly one of the tastiest jazz mandolinists alive today. New Englander Will Patton has been on our radar well over a decade as one of the most brilliant, and from the video below, you'll see why. Arranger, song-writer, and phenomenal on the frets, this is a personal favorite, Fats Waller "Jitterbug Waltz," and featured on his 2000 release, Latitudes and Departures. You'll find five "must have!" jazz mandolin CDs in his discography.
