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."

Did you recently purchase "Getting Into Jazz Mandolin?" If so, we want to remind you of the extra audio material on the site. We even know of some who bought the book after discover the tracks first.

These are a terrific resource, extended accompaniment tracks for learning 'ii V7 I' patterns and turnarounds. Our good friend, talented New Orleans multi-instrumentalist, John Eubanks recorded some terrific background tracks with bassist Jesse Boyd for working out the riffs in the "Getting Into Jazz Mandolin" book, or simply inventing your own.

Sample (guitar accompaniment only): Page 63: 2nd FFcP Bb Major 'ii V7 I'

The background in producing these tracks (no pun intended)--we were unaware of the 70 minute audio capacity of the whole book project; prior to production and ended up way over the limit. In trimming the CD down to size, we made the decision to offer these extras as web freebies, as well as possible enticement to buy the book. Either way, these are great for you to download into your computer or favorite MP3 player and have around.


Look for these and sample audio on the page from terrific mandolinists, including Don Stiernberg, Will Patton, Jamie Masefield, and a host of other special guests to help understand the end results of digging into these materials.
