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!

Buster Williams

Featured This Week On The Jazz Network Worldwide: Multi-instrumentalist Urban Blu hits #1 on Reverbnation's jazz charts in Atlanta with his new single "Electric Winter”.

Musician/Producer and Multi-instrumentalist Fernandez Billingslea, aka Urban Blu, has recently released his new digital release “Electric Winter” with a rave response. The Jazz Network Worldwide jumps on the bandwagon of this artist's new found glory as he propels to #1 on the Jazz charts in Atlanta on Reverbnation.

The Jazz Network Worldwide is proud to support Urban Blu’s expertise as an accomplished producer, composer and multi-instrumentalist creating a non-traditional approach to jazz compositions as he climbs the Reverberation charts with his current single digital release of “Electric Winter”.

“After closely listening to “Electric Winter” I heard different conversations, cohesively gathered with different musical flavors comprised of Miles Davis-type trumpet riffs, against funk/jazz foundations showered with some rock guitar, laid into the maze of musical flavors. I sensed emotional stories, all wrapped in one thrust, showing changes that brings the listener to different realms of thought. Sounds like the perfect foundation for a love-scene in a motion picture where love takes you many places of heart” says Jaijai Jackson, creator of The Jazz Network Worldwide.

Urban Blu comes from one of the most music rich southern cities, Macon Georgia. Over decades, Macon has produced several known musical artists, i.e. James Brown, The Allman Brothers Band, Little Richard, Sea Level, and Otis Redding to name a few. Blu demonstrated his musical spirit and God-given talent at a very early age, with his first instrument being the Clarinet, then moved onto the saxophone where his improvisation skills began to develop. It was when he discovered the drums that he accepted his fate and focused on being a drummer. By the time he entered the 12th grade he was one of the youngest most sought after professional drummers around Macon. This positioned him to gain valuable knowledge from seasoned musicians with several local bands like the ”“Reddings” and “Shabazz”.

Later in his career, he established his own recording company in Atlanta and formed his own band ‘Urban Blu’. Not long after their first album “Out Of The Blu” was released, they were catapulted as the best local band in that region. This positioning created opportunities to share stages with national artists like Najee, Herbie Hancock, TS Monk, Eric Benet, Cassandra Wilson, Tuck & Patti, Steve Turre & Sanctified Shells, Regina Carter, Claudia Villella, Cyrus Chestnut, Papo Vazquez, David S. Ware, Amel, Dr. Billy Taylor, Soul To Soul, and Gonzalo Rubalcaba.

The start of 2015 began on a high note for Urban Blu, for “Electric Winter” rapidly rocketed up the Reverbnation local jazz charts to #1 and continues to make leaps and bound across national, global, and “all genres” category charts. Reverrbnation is interested in submitting his music for major motion picture productions and online gaming opportunities.

There’s a tremendous music buzz lurking over the social media communities that includes FaceBook, Twitter, Instagram, SnapChat and major online Digital Music Distribution sites like Itunes and CDBaby. There’s no wonder that the foundation of his website (www.urbanbluemusic.com) a social network itself, is the perfect platform for his fans to become viral marketers supporting the growth of his musical expertise and upcoming releases. Urban Blu contributes a portion of each download of “Electric Winter” to the Love Hope Strength Foundation (LHS) which is the world’s leading rock-and-roll cancer foundation dedicated to saving lives, one concert at a time.
