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."

June 25, 2015 | High Note: Austin Clark


Fantastic online article on perennial JazzMando builder fave Austin Clark in the webzine "Built in Boise." The piece documents the history of Austin's entry into the business, from professional chef in Kansas to becoming an internationally sought source for quality boutique mandolins and guitars from his shop in Boise, Idaho.

The author mentions a certain reviewer who "has since ordered three Clark Mandolins for his personal collection."

Wonder who that might be?
