This year we celebrate the 9 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.

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!
