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."

Ted Eschliman: I'm very grateful for the support of my readers, and the beyond the call of duty mentoring you've done personally with my own site. Folks may not realize we have over 2,000 separate pages at JazzMando, complete with lessons, reviews, news, tips and tricks, guest writers, and a lot of practical knowledge that goes even beyond learning jazz.

One problem I have through is that that massive gravity of the material is falling into itself. There's so much that it's easy to get lost, and I'm thinking the best thing for me to do is clean it up, categorize, and reorganize to make it even more navigable. That's a never-ending battle.
