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."

If you are into really striving for a deep comprehension of the Jazz Standards (as are we) and how the mandolin can fit in this tradition, a great place to start is on the Blue Night Records web site. Don Stiernberg, master jazz mandolinist and penultimate recording artist along with some of Chicago's best rhythm players has fashioned some of the most ear-pleasing interpretations of the 20th century's jazz classics in these thorough collections.

We have Blue Night Records president Steven Briggs to thank for this great audio collection. It was his vision and passion for documenting the great music of this ground breaking artist and some of the Windy City's best session musicians.

We unabashedly recommend acquiring every recording with the Blue Night label for your own library to study and enjoy.
