AIN'T NO SUNSHINE

JESSE CAMPBELL

THIS IS RAY BROWN JR.

RAY BROWN JR.

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!

Review: The Bad Plus, 'Never Stop II'

Each album by The Bad Plus can be understood as a planted flag, a marker of group identity. Hear the jazz trio's first record with new pianist Orrin Evans.

All Right! That's what it's all about!

You've got me thinking. I need to give more of my music to those who can really benefit from it.

Here's a little story: There were two doors. In the first door in the middle of the room there was a round table and in the middle of the table was a large pot of stew which smelled delicious but the people around the table was thin and sickly.
They appeared to be famished. They were holding spoons with very long handles that were strapped to their arms and each found it possible to reach into the pot of stew and take a spoonful. But because the handle was longer than their arms, they could not get the spoons back into their mouths. The second door there was also a round table, with the same delicious stew. The people were equipped with the same long-handled spoons, but here the people were well nourished and plump, laughing and talking. You say what was the difference? It required only one skill.
You see, they had learned to feed each other.
The greedy think only of themselves.' We must share our talents - feed each other. Love Ya!

We are an artist community here in Grand Junction, CO. curious that jazz is not as openly embraced, this needs to change. Jazz and the classics have been healing me for over 35 of my 55 years at least. Since joining JaiJai here, I have met many people that are an inspiration and have got back up with myself, two hands and a toe to help others. This is a program well worth the effort.

As well as being a jazz pianist, I also practice and teach Taiji. I'm looking for the connections....
Comment by David H. Anthony on July 23, 2009 at 8:15am
I am very willing to be a part of this community. Music is the healing force of the universe.

The way the words are sung. The way the notes come together. What words are sung (very important. These are all keys in who will even listen. Words - Music - Love -Willingness. We've got the ingredients, let's start to blend them together in the bowl. Who's got the big wooden spoon to stir. Jai Jai?
