"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."
Since it's Christmas Eve, we sent the JazzMando staff out early so they could spend a little extra time with their families.
Of course we know really what they are going to do is find a quiet corner alone in the basement and pick some carols, but that's okay. It'll put them in the spirit for spending the holidays with kin. The in-laws and the out-laws.
We'll leave you with a favorite video from the Seinfeld show. Have a merry one, whether it's driving around town to see Christmas lights, drinking a little egg nog, or participating in the Feats of Strength.
