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 15, 2011 | Just A Little Lovin; The Wayfaring Strangers

JohnMcGann.jpgThe octave mandolin functions well as a comping instrument in jazz, and superbly in the hands of JazzMando fave John McGann, as a soloing one. Berklee's prestigious frets professor is a member of "The Wayfaring Strangers," a magnificent American roots ensemble of faculty and many of the school's alums. We ran across this dandy high def video recording of a WCPN radio performance in Cleveland, Ohio on May of this year, a unique interpretation of the Ray Charles classic, "Just a Little Lovin'." Nice to see sing singer Tracy Bonham back with the Strangers again, too.

Great stuff!
