Brooklyn, NY
Tell us a little about your background...
From Strata East to Kanye West, from straight-ahead jazz to straight-out funk, Brian Jackson is a true American legend. Listen to his more than a dozen albums recorded with partner-in-crime Gil Scott-Heron and you are bound to have many 'where have i heard that before? ' moments. That's because so many of his licks and riffs have been sampled - and continue to be sampled by - hip-hop aristocracy. Check his latest appearances on Kanye's "Home Again" and on Common's new smash, "The People", which feature's Brian's signature synth lines from "We Almost Lost Detroit," and you'll see that his musical vision was decades ahead of its time.

After over 35 years of creativity, Brian can still be found building musical alliances with artists as diverse as Ron Carter, Dj Logic and Pete Miser, and actively encourages contact between himself and younger, less-established artists as well.

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!
