I am a former folk music radio host with a strong interest in trad jazz. I play guitar in a band "Big Hats and No Cattle" which has an eclectic repertoire and I host a music blog where I attempt to reveal the connections between various genres and periods of popular music.

I checked out your page in the Jazz Network. Nice playing! When you get a moment please check out my free guitar lesson page at: http://www.bluesandjazzguitar.blogspot.com/ pass it on to friends, students and anyone who likes jazz guitar. I’m trying to promote jazz and blues guitar.
Clark - I was just checking out your blog, you've got some good stuff there! You're doing a good service; YouTube can be quite overwhelming - there's just so much there - by breaking it down and pulling out quality music, you're finding the good stuff for us. You've got an interesting & eclectic taste too - I like it! I'll be back for more.
Thanks for the add, Clark! I love the name of your band, Big Hats and No Cattle. Hope you'll stop by and listen to the new tracks I've added .. they are all tracks off my new CD which will be "officially" released end of this month.
Hello Clark!...Thanks for stopping by!...No I am not the artist of the paintings in my photo slide show on my page...They are done by a variety of artists...Enjoyed reading through your blog at clarkspicks.com...Have a great upcoming week!
Peace & Blessings
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."
