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 16, 2013 | Coming soon, Sorensen SXS review


The FedEx man brought a nice little Friday surprise to the JazzMando lab, a gorgeous butterscotch swirl prototype Sorensen mandolin, his new SXS. We're delighted for the opportunity and look forward to spending the next week getting to know this critter. We've only had time to bring it to pitch and strum a few chords, but the mandolin is extremely responsive. Sometimes you can tell just by the vibrations in your fingers how lively an instrument is, and this shows great promise. Steve has been very busy developing some new ideas into his craft.

We wont' be disappointed!

Back to the lab. Research, research, research!
