Recently commissioned to do the theme song and soundtrack for the new cable TV show A LOCAL ANESTHETIC, Gary Smejkal is back into the studio to record his second CD titled PLAYING IN THE WHITE SPACE.
He brings into the studio a new roster of musicians including Wayne Morgan, Steve Esposito, Ray Chiffy, and Christa Dhimo.
LIKE A MOTH TO THE FLAME, the 2008 debut from Gary Smejkal, features three new original compositions written for the bass. In further exploring the bass as a lead instrument, Smejkal contrasts driving hard rock rhythms with unexpected interludes and fusionist stylings.
Bootsy Collins told Smejkal “Consider this an A for approval and a C for the chops, which you do have.”
LIKE A MOTH TO THE FLAME was called “Fluid, expansive and filled with flurries of bass notes” in Metronome Magazine and has received air play on WSCA 106.1 FM and WMBR 88.1 FM

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!
