Saxman Darron McKinney is a Police Officer for the Detroit School District Police. In the 1980s, he majored in criminal justice and jazz studies at Southern University in Baton Rouge La, under Jazz Master Alvin Batiste of New Orleans. After Leaving Louisiana, he returned to Detroit, quickly getting back into the mainstream. Among the artist he has shared the stage with are Ben Tankard, Pieces of a dream, Ronnie Laws, Angela Bofil, Dizzy Gillespie, Max Roach, Jimmy Heath, Roy Ayers, Betty "BEBOP" Carter,Joe Sample, Cuba Gooding Sr., Regina Belle, Mikki Howard and Waymen Tisdale. As a newcomer trying to make inroads into the smooth jazz scene, he's off to an above average start. ~ Jonathan Widran, All Music Guide Darron McKinney is an imposing physical presence but a gentle musical giant nonetheless. DJ Markie Bee's Comments - Ah, that smooth jazz has the old Skool steppers slow drag beat. This is from Darron McKinney's CD called Feel Like Makin Love. It's definitely a danceable song for the steppers. (Release February 14, 2009). As the testimonials say below, this artist is well known across the world. Don Smith - Radio Port Phillip 98.7 & 98.3 FM Melbourne Victoria Australia McKinney studied with the legendary Alvin Batiste, Music is certainly not foreign to McKinney, who is in a family of 10 siblings who also play musical instruments and sing. He is also a recipient of a Black Entertainment Television (BET)Jazz Discovery Award and often compared to the late Grover Washington Jr. Natasha Washington - Jazz Review. His sax playing style will remind you of Najee and George Howard. His sound is crisp and clean, very professional. In addition to Smooth Jazz, he also plays Inspirational and Christian Music. Mike James Smooth Jazz and More. Very touching music...perfect for relaxing and meditating to. Kenny Wako Joy Radio 89.6FM Malawi South Africa. Absolutely fantastic album from Darron. I thought that I was listening to Kenny G when I first played the CD!! Great music,well produced and very easy to listen to time and time again..I trust that we will hear more from Darron in the near future. Terry Neal 101FM Logan City Queensland Australia. Darron is a true artist and I love his music. This is the smooth jazz style and one of my favs. Keith West The Fusion Intrusion show KVMR in Nevada City, Ca. Superb Jazz that every Jazz lover should hear. I thank the Artist for the excellent contribution to Jazz. Yarden ben Yaakov Radio and Media Productions Australia.

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!
