Hi folks!

My CD, "Dear Peg," recorded with the John Chiodini Quintet has just been listed on the 2010 Grammy ballot in the "Best Jazz Vocal Album" category. If you are a voting NARAS member, I invite you to see my website, http://www.tishoney.com where you can hear the album and consider casting your vote in our direction. This album is important historically, being the first album ever to honor the late, great Peggy Lee for her songwriting talents--she wrote lyrics for every song on the album and this has spearheaded my Peggy Lee Project tour, which is a concert presentation with this same band performing my arrangements of her original songs throughout the U.S. Thanks for reading! Blessings,
Tish

Not a musician, but a crooner. I learned to sing in my speaking voice from Frank Sinatra and found our voices to be very familiar. I don't impersonate him, but I've certainly borrowed his style and phrasing! Happy to be in LA doing what I love!

Hello All,
I am a pianist/composer living in Orange County and mostly performing abroad. I will be on tour in Japan in September, and would like to connect to the LA community for gigs and creative projects.

All the best,
Francesco Crosara

James Jamerson

TENURE, 1959-1983


James Lee Jamerson (1936-1983) transformed the role of electric bass in popular music. He was the top bassist for Detroit's Motown Records from the late 1950's to the early 1970's, and his impeccable and infectious bass guitar work underpinned more hit records than that of prehaps any bassist in history.

Although in his lifetime he received little public recognition or credit for his towering contribution to music, the countless hits fueled by his propulsive and musically adventurous bass work remain beloved by millions worldwide as each generation discovers and rediscovers the magic of Motown's 1960s golden age.

His unerring musical instincts - brought to life on a 1962 Fender Precision Bass guitar - were called upon time and again for what would prove to be timelessly enduring classics by the Miracles, the Temptations, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Martha and the Vandellas, the Four Tops, the Supremes and many others. On every record featuring Jamerson, each bassline is a masterpiece of rhythm and melody; each is a joyfully irresistible musical force.

Jamerson's inescapable influence on bassists of all eras and styles is incalculable, and he is thus universally regarded as one of the finest artists to ever wield the instrument.

RIP BUNNY, THANK YOU FOR A LIFE OF GREAT MUSIC

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

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!
