AIN'T NO SUNSHINE

JESSE CAMPBELL

THIS IS RAY BROWN JR.

RAY BROWN JR.

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!

How Benny Goodman Orchestrated 'The Most Important Concert In Jazz History'

Eighty years ago, barriers were broken when Benny Goodman took a mixed race band to play jazz to Carnegie Hall.

Review: The Bad Plus, 'Never Stop II'

Each album by The Bad Plus can be understood as a planted flag, a marker of group identity. Hear the jazz trio's first record with new pianist Orrin Evans.

Songs We Love: Kat Edmonson, 'Old Fashioned Gal'

On the first single from Old Fashioned Gal, Edmonson pines for a respite from pop-up ads and notifications, for a phone "inextricably connected to a wall."

Hi Ernie! Thank you for the welcome ;0) I really like your artwork, intricate, straight to the sound of it so to speak... I particularly like the one of Billie Holiday, and then the fouth one of the sax player... Very expressive all of them really. I'll do my best to download some pics as well - a little new at this! Blessings & Pretty Notes*

Ernie, again, thanks so much for thr compliments. Yes, I do listen to jazz while I create art. I can go on for hours. I even listen to it while I'm reading my emails. Here is Las Vegas listen to two jazz stations.

The last few days it's saddening to hear of Wayman Tisdale. We have seen him here in Las Vegas, a few times.

It took me a while to appreciate the easy listening and mood sensations of jazz. Listening to jazz just instantly relaxes any situation for me. My parents listened to it, while I was younger and could not understand why.

Age is wisdom and wisdom is experience and I am so pleased now, to have the opportunity "in my time" for my children to say the same about "my parent's music".

Are you working on any particular piece now?
Are you ever in the Las Vegas area?
Where do you showcase your art?

Thanks for being a friend, Diana

Welcome Ernie,
I've always believed jazz could be bestowed on the eyes as well as the ears. The paintbrush, as your choice of instrumentation, expresses your melodies beautifully.

Love your art, I can hear them playing! Doesn't art and jazz go well together, don't you find?
