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."

We uncovered this long lost video in our archives from five years ago.

What happens when a hotel fire alarm creates a chance meeting in a stairwell with a television film maker on assignment for Bobby Flay (the Food Network) and three acoustic jazz musicians from Skokie? Well of course, the opportunity to capture on video an impromptu performance of Autumn Leaves. What else?...

This seven minute YouTube performance kicks in around 0:45. Featured are Steven Briggs, local "Swing Shift" duo partner, Dario Napoli, and JazzMando mentor Don Stiernberg. this "Suite 711" from the Skokie Hampton Inn is a video adventure.

Enjoy: Suite 711
