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."

January 24, 2014 | Winter NAMM 2014


Just a few pictures from the floor of the 2014 NAMM show as we complete our first of four days. A busy vendor meeting schedule has slowed us down traversing the five football fields of musical gear and instruments, mandolins being somewhat sparse, but we hope to snap more and put them on the JazzMando Facebook Page.

Bad lighting is making the task somewhat difficult, but here's a couple interesting critters from the Fender booth, a new 8-string electric mandolin, and from the newly introduced (2013) Gretsch line, the Grand Park Avenue. Many have been critical of the new 8-string electric headstock. We dig it, and even with the 4-string had the same cosmetics.
