Georgian born songstress, Toni Redd, is an internationally known vocalist with an intense style. The captivating and sultry vocal styling of Toni Redd combines traditional jazz, pop, classic soul, and urban rhythm & blues to create her own unique and powerful ambience - as she takes us on her musical trek via that down home, rich, old school sound that fully grasps the emotional heart and soul of her listeners.

Winner of four SESAC Music Awards, and 20 recordings to his credit, Bob Baldwin is an internationally acclaimed pianist, composer, producer, author, and radio show host. He has shared the stage with such notables as Roy Ayers, Chuck Loeb, Gerald Albright, Marion Meadows, Armsted Christian, Dean James, Eric Essix, Najee, Will Downing, Grover Washington, Jr., Noel Pointer, Joey Sommerville, and Tom Browne to name a few.

Hello everyone! I'm so glad to find more people who have a real passion for jazz like me! I'm 15 in West Windsor-Plainsboro, NJ. I just got my own quintet going and i'm really just looking for some advice spanning anything from getting gigs to life in the music world in general, and for other players in my area to jam with. I am also in search of a mentor  with experience in 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!
