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."

August 30, 2013 | Genre Hopping with Chris Thile

While we may not be all that wild about an overly overt audience member response even in the context of a stuffy symphony audience (even if it is Chris Thile), the artist has some very good points about the stimulating power of great art. The solo mandolin "genre hopping" demo is a rich 4 1/2 minutes of fun in the following Wall Street Journal Live video.

Always love watching him play.

Is it just us, or does Chris look more and more like Quentin Tarantino every day?
