June 17, 2012 – Father's Day.

Posted on June 17, 2012 at 12:00pm 4 Comments

Dear Reader, peace to you and yours today.  It has been a long, long journey traveling through life since I last spoke up here. I'm glad you made it thru too!

 

I'm in the City of Angels – which is not too far from Maison Musique – as I am blessedly visiting with my family. It's the perfect time to tell of what I know, and what I love.

 

My father was a good man. A good man in the true sense. And as his third and youngest son, last of all his children, I…

You've got to fight – and party – for your mind.

 

Dear Reader, yours truly am a man of few words today. Here, out from under T.S. Lee [Allen] all is cool... almost calm, and necessarily collected. Labor Day '11... so far, so wet... and not as wild as one would expect.

 

Honestly, I feel more threatened by the storms of “Peak-Media-Season '11” than by any force of nature.…

“Eat the rich!”

 

Welcome back Dear Reader; and Happy August to you. While I have long maintained that happiness (as in: “the pursuit of...”) is highly overrated, I do sincerely hope that you are now and have been playing it cool... all the way; and I submit this small buffet of thought.

 

A quarter of a century ago, the phrase, “eat the rich” first entered my consciousness by way of a song which was written and recorded by one of America's truest originals.…

There is a great awakening occurring now.

 

In my times as a New Yorker, I had the opportunity to work as a member of the cast of a musical entitled, A Tapestry of Dreams. This play was conceived and written by a man named, Nat Bucknell; the music was composed by the noted, Carol Hall.

 

In one scene, I delivered the line, “The Japanese character for crisis, also means enlightenment.” This is, as far as I can tell, a great truth of nature which the Jazz man is…

June 7, 2011 - Homer Plessy Day!

Dear Reader, with summer '11 upon us, and the Mississippi river subsiding within us, and storm season again taking its rightful place, [ALL HAIL...!] I say: Here's to time!

 

I am glad to be back home in New Orleans; where one can't go too, too far without bumping into to some sign or plaque acknowledging our history. [I can't help but joke about the sign which was placed, not too long ago, at the end of my block stating the name of my neighborhood as the "Suburb…

March 15, 2011 – Saint Danny's Day

Posted on March 15, 2011 at 11:00pm 1 Comment

“Roll with the punches!” 

 

Danny Barker had a bold, and oftentimes, daring perspective on seemingly anything and everything under the sun.

 

He unflinchingly viewed the foibles of human life with a wry sense of humor and a deep self-knowing; both of which were hallmarks of his singular style.

 

He summed up his life's ethos as the quintessential Jazz journeyman, offering the words which with I open this day's very special post. Danny Barker…

My fellow Americans... and dear Readers everywhere, let us take a few moments to hear Mr. Barker's address: The State of the Smile.

I talk too much.



[Listen to an air-check from a radio show broadcast live in New Orleans, 10:00 p.m.-Midnight, Tuesday, September 11, 2001. Try clicking here... It's also at the top of the Playlist on my Main Page.]



I admit it; and of course many have said that generally, in quality and quantity, we talk… Continue

PLEASE SUPPORT BY PURCHASING MY MUSICAL PRODUCT!

Compact Disc's are available thru the website of LOUISIANA MUSIC FACTORY - a wonderful, locally-owned and operated French Quarter retailer worthy of your support.

www.louisianamusicfactory.com

I have also created a new Digital Download compilation album of tunes from 1996-2006 called "Moments of Sound." The album - and its individual tracks - is now available in many of the online music stores.

You can click and go directly to the album in your favorite online store:

Lala
Shockhound
Emusic
Amazon

The album is also available on itunes and Rhapsody, but you will have to search for Esquizito by name; there's no direct link.

Of course you can bring me to your area for live performances, workshops, and lectures - which of course is the best way to enjoy and support my work.

With Gratitude.
Peace & Pops,
E.

Esquizito,l, you have jazz analysed from 'la primitivve 'to contemporary,, neither terms adequately describing either, am listening to your' Stardust' (state of the art Ballad) a tune capable of going in any rhythmic or melodic direction. You love jazz from top to bottom, like I do, the most creative of "'"""Arts"" Tommy.

The Jazz Network Worldwide is comprised of all the subsets of the industry worldwide from managers, agents, publicists, venues, festivals, radio stations, studios, musicians, vocalists, etc. and of course fans.  You can use it as a database by utilizing the tool bar for what you seek to connect and network with.

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!
