If you dig spoken-word, I expect you'll enjoy the samples from this Zzaj Productions CD a great deal... I did all the poetry, a myriad of other players did the music - but what a BLAST we had!

Thank you. I can send you a CD. Please give me your address. Most of the CD is aimed at a world fusion market, with a lot of trumpet ad libs.

I've been at this "creativity" business ever since I was created... which may mean several millenniums, or could only be the slight 60+ years I've been here this time.

What I've found missing over the last 30 years or so is a place where creatives of all flavors could come & trade ideas about their projects... since my inclination is more towards the channeling of the things the muse spurs in me into musical outputs, I'm better able to talk about that - BUT, there have been many… Continue

We are genre-inspecific... the only thing that matters when it comes to what I select for review in my magazine, IMPROVIJAZZATION NATION, is the ENERGY level of the players!

If you're producing lackluster music that doesn't dig down into the SOUL of whatever you're conveying with your music - don't send your stuff. I somehow doubt too many players would think that about their music, but those of who are in the position have heard such aplenty. There's a certain level of COMMITMENT… Continue

















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!
