Tell us a little about your background...
I've learned a lot of surprising things about jazz over the years. There’s not a one size fit all or cookie cutter recipe when it’s comes to the sound of jazz music. The pitch and timbre of jazz varies greatly; depending on what era you’re listening too!

There’s Contemporary, Swing, Cotton Club, Bluesy, Big Band, Bebop and much more. There are so many variations of the melodic sound called jazz. My journey and love for all things jazz started as a little girl. I could sing before I would talk! I came from a musical family, and music and singing were always around the house.

While listening and studying the singing jazz greats; like Billie Holiday, Diane Washington, Lena Horne my love of Jazz grew, I was captivated. I was by no means a jazz expert I just knew that I was a part of jazz and jazz was a part of me.

My love of jazz coupled with the gift of gab Voice overwork and love of people has brought me to this place as an Executive Producer and Radio Personality for Coffee Talk Jazz Radio.

How can I send you a private message? I would like to check with my two friends on the coast who have VERY impressive, versatile projects. Their work as musician, arranger/composer, etc. for the movies (including "The Passion of Christ"), orchestral works for the Symphony, etc. would make, I would think, fascinating listening for your show.
I've played with some 'awesome' musicians (as a supplement to my 35 years of teaching). I've concentrated on wedding fare, etc. to help get three daughters through college. I now play more solo venues (art openings, auction fund raisers, etc.) rather than trio or quintet gigs.
In the meantime, I shall check with my friends on your coast to see if they'd be willing to do an interview with you. I prefer to give you details in a private message.

















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!
