TRIBUTE TO SAMMY NESTICO

THE BOB NOVAL ORCHESTRA

SHELLEY BURNS ~ ACCENTUATE

TRIBUTE TO JOHNNY MERCER

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!

THE JAZZ NETWORK INTERNATIONAL ARTIST FEATURE ~ JULIO FOWLER

JULIO FOWLER Utopias’ tour 09/10 Spain-based Cuban artist Julio Fowler, as heir to the Vieja y Nueva Trova (old & New Cuban song), expands and diversifies the horizons of classic Cuban sounds. He belong to that wave of Cuban singer songwriter known as “Topo's generation” because of it’s underground status. His music is a mixture of original identity & vanguard, an assembly of his roots with all those musical trends compatible with it. Julio Fowler is a musical alchemist whose own special blend of magic comes from his knack for combining the popular and traditional elements of “Cuban Music” with sounds and rhythms from other cultures such as flamenco, jazz, funk or Bossa nova. From this melting pot of influences he has brought into existence a highly refreshing and original set of melodies, rhythms and timbres. Your sound could be considered "musical fusion" of the highest order as his lack of musical inhibitions allows him to move effortlessly from guaguancó to boleros as he flirts openly with bulería while at the same time showing his overt passion for jazz in a surprising mix of acoustic and electronic. If you are interested in presenting Julio Fowler in concert, please feel free to send us your proposal. CONTACT: Booking & Management Maria Sanchez maria@mariasanchez.es

Hello The World,
Happy to see that jazz is linking people again. The last twenty years have been so awful for the music. I guess we needed a new century to start over from scratch.
Hobo also did, after years of tryin' to play the blues, we decided to re-discover the american songbooks. And from that day we have been plaing with a huge smile on our faces!
Alors, SALUT A TOUS!

"An extraordinarily pliable voice in settings rich with melody, emotion and rhythm (…), his gift for melody and his persuasive powers for interpretation establish an instant connection for listeners (…) always fascinating."

SELECTED REVIEWS ABOUT “BAMISPHERE” & "SONG ZIN'..."

This sunny set of African-flavored vocal jazz is fresh, surprising and utterly unique...
Sitson's launches his stunningly pliant voice into high register arcs, eerie sound effects and vocal/body-percussion.
Forrest Dylan Bryant/JAZZ TIMES


That voice is a marvelous instrument...
Gino Sitson is a talented musician with a clear vision of what he wants to achieve, so he is well worth investigating.
Ken Dryden/ALL MUSIC GUIDE


Although he has earned a reputation as a singer of extraordinary agility, Sitson is far more than a formidable voice. His approach is abstract, joyous, and integrates as much jazz as it does traditional music. He is his own man when it comes to his art, and defies easy categorization.
CALABASHMUSIC.COM



Gino Sitson is his own stand-alone musical phenomenon.

Want to join this group but did not see where to sign up...help!
Comment by Toni 'Jazz' Manieson on March 31, 2008 at 10:02am
Well, I guess you could call me an International musician. I am from Los Angeles. I moved to Ghana 11 years ago from Atlanta, GA. I own a Jazz Club called "Jazz Tone" @ Chelsea Place Hotel and have had some incredible players play for me. My pianist for instance has been with me for at least seven years. He's now 27 years old and he's really come into his own. You can see him on You-tube. He won a scholarship to Berklee School of Music through the Rita Marley Foundation and went to Boston two summer's ago. He plays at Jazz Tone at least three nights a week with me. We have a couple of Cd's that I've produced and he has one that his brother produced recently that's a Christmas Jazz Piano Cd. Our first Cd was also a Jazzy Christmas Cd and the second one still needs to be mixed. I've held on to it because we want it mixed well. It has eight standards on it featuring Victor Dey on Piano and Adjetey Sowah on Congas and myself on Vocals. Adjetey is also a fabulous Conga player.
