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."

October 31, 2010 | Blackface Two-point from Brian Lock

We reviewed the handiwork of southwest U.S. builder, Brian Lock not long ago. His intriguing blonde two-point was a big hit around the JazzMando Lab last spring, and he's recently taunted us with pictures of an equally snappy blackface fresh off the bench. Gorgeous vintage celluloid binding, outlining a wooden oval-holed wonder.

He weighs in, "I have been enjoying playing this one lately. Macassar Ebony details, abalone rosette." We'd love to get our hands on this one, too!

Simply delicious!
