Hi Ingrid, First of all, your artwork topshelf, as always. Thanks for offering your services for the teeshirt design. Please don't go away. We'll probably need a few more artists to come forward to make the process "interesting". Think of the long range possibilities associated with spreading our logo all over the world! Not only do we as a family become recognized as "jazz ambassadors", monies can be generated for worthy causes in our name and we can have fun making this happen at the same time. I made the suggestion, but Jaijai will have the final say on which design will represent TJNW. She has assured me she's working on it.

Swinging greetings, Ingrid is my homepage

A Jazz Network T-Shirt is something to have. To be recognized in the world we participate in. So let's get on the ball!

Want to learn to play a traditional Native American flute near Oneida? Broke your bongos in Buffalo? Trying to get a gig in Williamsburg? This is why we created
The New York Music Index and Archive (NYMIA).

The NYMIA is a freely available online database designed to provide information and access to all aspects of the popular music industry based in New York State. It was created by the ARChive of Contemporary Music, with funding from ARC, the NYState Music fund and Columbia University.

The goal of the NYMIA is to facilitate the everyday business of music-making through contacts and links. In this way anyone can learn about working artists, available grants, upcoming festivals, appropriate venues, instrument repair, aggregators, record companies, publishers, sales outlets - any and all music related goods and services.

We are asking that musician, support industries or any business that can help musicians create and share their art go to our site to join the NYMIA

To date over 40,000 people and businesses based in New York have joined. Joining is free and data is not marketed in any way by ARC.

The ARChive of Contemporary Music is a not-for-profit archive, music library and research center located in New York City. The ARChive collects preserves and provides information on the popular music of all cultures throughout the world.

Since 1985 our holdings have grown to two million sound recordings, making the ARChive the largest popular music collection in the World.

Members of the Board of Advisors are: David Bowie, Jellybean Benitez, Jonathan Demme, Ellie Greenwich, Jerry Leiber, Youssou N'Dour,
Lou Reed, Keith Richards, Nile Rodgers, Todd Rundgren, Fred Schneider, Martin Scorsese, Paul Simon, Mike Stoller and Jerry Wexler

The NYMIA (New York Musicians Index and Archive) is available for NY based musicians and music related businesses to join and anyone to search.

We hope it will be useful. Tell your friends.

Thanks, Jaijai....I have gotten a request already, thanks to programmer, Tom Maleson, (Tom the jazz man) to perform a concert in January, in New Bern, NC. If this happens it will be a great shot in the arm.
All musicians in Charlotte, or close by, give me a hello..I'm looking for musicians.

Great idea, hoping that this bridge can help european festivals to change their programs and to add "fresh blood". Every year you have, more or less, the same artists and every year those artists perform in the different festivals in France, Italy, etc. It would be nice to listen to other artists...and also to have chances to perform

Great Idea IMI....this is what I'm talking about, utilizing all of our databases to create avenues of employment bridging the countries musically. It's not wishful thinking its wise thinking! Thank you for doing that! Please let me know the outcome, I'd be open to advertising Catania Jazz to begin the relationship so the network can lift them up as well!

Thanks Ron for your support! I hope you are enjoying your new home in NC, for they will soon find out the talent that joined their community. Keep connected!

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!
