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!

Buster Williams

Great group for a great music! I've been in love with Bossa Nova since I started loving music... If you have a sec, check out my recordings of 'A Felicidade' and 'Fotografia' on my page. I hope my Portuguese is passable! :)

My father, Harry Babasin, actually invented the first Bossa Nova with Brazilian guitarist, Laurindo Almeida, meeting him back in 1947 on the set of the movie, A Song Is Born. They eventually put a quartet together that recorded and released two 10" albums which many jazz historians consider to be the first Bossa Nova recordings, though the term was not coined until the late fifties. The Laurindo Almeida Quartet was Laurindo on guitar, Harry on bass, Roy Harte on drums, and Bud Shank on alto sax. There are millions of fans of Bossa Nova, hundreds of thousands of artists that play Bossa Nova, international festivals dedicated to Bossa Nova, and my father and this group has never been recognized for its creation. I am, however, getting the history books rewritten to include this group of amazingly talented musicians who were way ahead of their time...

Yes, it is a very natural groove. Out here in Seattle we have Jovino Santos Neto and I also mentor with Eduardo Mendonca from Bahia.

Jovino's new record Alma do Nordeste is off the hook! Amazing Brazilian musicians. Check the 7/4 baion on there! He traveled around Northeast Brazil to meet musicians and get inspirations for the pieces on the record.

Jovino was the pianist in Hermeto' Pascoal's Gruppo from 1978 -1992. Now he teaches at the Cornish School of Music here in Seattle.
