This year we celebrate the 10th year anniversary of The Jazz Network Worldwide! I do hope that it is a work that has been looked at as my art and contribution to jazz and its forward movement. In dedication to my father "Chubby" Jackson, you won't find me stopping anytime soon for  I'll continue to create with no negatives as my father would say.

I just integrated a new network under The Jazz Network Worldwide umbrella.

The Not Just Jazz Network, where we find the best of the best in all genres that integrates their artistry with jazz.  There is much to do and create, so its presented with class, dignity and an innovative flare in keeping this art form moving forward.

I’m looking to open our horizons, be a place where festivals come to see what is new and exciting in the world of jazz and its booking capabilities.  Its up to us to show the marketplace what a real jazz festival can be with talent that makes sense to be on a jazz stage.   I’m all for variety music festivals, showcasing the various genres, but what I don’t stand for is other genres booked on these festivals that have nothing to do with jazz, singing their R&B hits from the 90’s. Wrong.

Only through my heritage do I get my fuel, I need for those of you from other genres that would like to be a part of this quest to join us in the 'great place to hang' and share who you are…let’s hear your musical integration of jazz your way!

That is my quest for 2017 and beyond so jazz festivals will consider just that, where it honors the artistry of all who improvise their hearts and were inspired by Jazz.

FEATURED THIS WEEK: Pianist, Uli Geissendoerfer


VEGAS RECORDS, THE CITY'S NEW RECORDING LABEL, SHEDS SPOTLIGHT ON LOCAL TALENT 

Celebrated Las Vegas Jazz musician Uli Geissendoerfer breathes new life into Vegas’ music scene, honoring the past and fostering the future.  

Uli Geissendoerfer, director of UNLV’s Downbeat Award-winning Latin Jazz Ensemble, curator of the Jazz Club at the Dispensary and this week’s featured artist on The Jazz Network Worldwide, seeks to unite the unique voice of Vegas musicians under one hub of creativity: Vegas Records. Three albums crest the musical wave: 

Geissendoerfer’s seventh album as a leader, Long Way Home features the house trio of the Jazz Club at the Dispensary Lounge, now going on eight years. Backed by Angelo Stokes (drums) and Dave Ostrem (bass), Geissendoerfer offers an eclectic collection of originals, paired with clever spins on three Beatles classics and bouncing yet brooding Latin infused You and the Night and the Music.  This album is on the ballot in three categories in the upcoming Grammy season: Best Jazz Album, Best Original Song ("Long Way Home"), and Best Arrangement ("Here comes The Sun"). 

Beregovski Suite, a collaboration between Geissendoerfer and klezmer violinist Alicia Svigals. The pair, with the help of Iliya Magalnyk (accordion) and Vanderlei Pereira (pandeiro) recreate the Jewish melodies compiled by Moshe Beregovski from the late 1920’s to mid 1940’s. His long last wax cylinders offer insight into a cultural world lost, and Geissendoerfer and Svigals re-imagine them for the 21st century.  This album is on the ballot in best World Music album category in the upcoming Grammy season.  

Fascinating Rhythm & Latin Journey IV is the latest addition to the award-winning creative canon of the UNLV School of Music’s Division of Jazz Studies.  A two-disc compilation featuring the music of undergraduate and graduate students who, in 2018 alone, collectively won six Downbeat Student Music Awards! Featured guest artist are San Diego stalwart Gilbert Castellanos on trumpet and the inimitable Laura Taylor on vocals. Both recording artists with a litany of albums give extra sheen to the Big Band set. UNLV Jazz Ensemble I on CD 1 and Latin Jazz Ensemble on CD 2 are augmented by our program’s other ensembles: Monterey New Genration 2018 winners, The Honors trio along with The UNLV Honors Quartet, Contemporary Ensemble, the Estella Yun Electric Band, and a solo piano track by Patrick Hogan.  

These three albums perfectly encapsulate the theme at the heart of Vegas Records’ mission statement: a marriage of past, present and future in the pursuit of creative music in Las Vegas.

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
