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."

November 2, 2013 | Five years ago, Will Patton gave us "the runaround."

6th St. Runaround

Released five years ago, the Will Patton Ensemble's "6th Street Runaround" remains a perpetual jazz mandolin favorite. A decade and a half of recordings under his belt, you'd be remiss to not have this or any of his other four recordings, for that matter.

The Will Patton Ensemble

His Django-meets-Jacob approach to the mandolin combined with his previous multiple decades of seasoning as an upright bass player yields a hard-earned street sensibility in Bebop and American Songbook jazz.

Lock this one up in your library if you haven't already.
