Hi Al,

Finally get to reply to your comment about Mike Gibbs!

Sure, Mike was quite big in the UK during the 70's, and
as well as a player was a fine arranger. His early work's a mite before my time but as a player I was aware of him
and saw him in concert in the 80's.

He's now one of the remaining 'old guard' in a sense, as many of his contemporaries have passed on including such as Ian Carr (Nucleus etc) who sadly passed away only recently.

A personal opinion I grant you but Mike's early UK work represented a golden age (if you will) when so much great experimentation was taking place.

When I think of what came out from the mid/late 60's to the early mid 70's, on both sides of the Atlantic. From Mike, Nucleus, Jon Surman, Stan Tracey, Joe Harriot and John McLaughlin's magnificent Mahavishnu Orchestra etc to the ominpresent towering Miles, Roland Kirk (my hero as a flute player) Coltrane, Shepp, Rollins, Ornette, Bobby Hutcherson, Weather Report (the genius of Zawinul) Return To Forever (Chick never better on Hymn Of The Seventh Galaxy) the list is endless.

The fact that the spirit of some of this work is starting to appear again (and in my work) and generate a new audience is testament to such pioneers. When I think of some of the sheer dross and 'Emperor's New Clothing' that abounds today we are all the poorer for their loss.

Many kindest

Al Hi!!

Thanks for stopping by and saying hello :-)

Yes, I knew Steve, he was on the band when I was singing with Buddy Rich. He was an amazing person, a very talented guy, hysterical sense of humor and was very saddened by his passing.

Thank you for the compliment on my Dad...glad you used to watch his show, I remember how fun it was as a little girl seeing how it was produced. Always felt like a 'big party' with camera's.. :-)

Thanks for being here and bringing your experience and light and as for Mikayla, what a shining star she is.

Stay connected and blessed,

Hey Al thank you for add me, yeah I know Johnny Dorelly, it's really famous artist in Italy, that's great man.
I know also that there were some "Galetta" people moved long time ago and for some reason their last name change in Galletto.
Keep in touch. Ciao

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!
