Hello Mr. Thomas,
Congrats on your many, jazzy successes! I'd be honored to send you my project for review and airplay. I've got some slick new additions to the jazz world like 'Old Man's Girl, Holding Down This 40, Drink U Some Act Right and more. I also love your beautiful family pictures as well. Congratulations! Happy Jazzy New Year!
My music is currently under review at WHCR and WNYU in NY.
Have a blessed and jazzy New Year!

Hey Greg,
Yes... NYC is in the plans. Haven't settled on a venue. I attached this review to answer your second question regarding promotion. Yours smoothly...

PLAY TO YOUR STRENGTHS!!

Regina Records artist Victor Fields played to a sold out crowd at Ashford and Simpson's famed Sugar Bar in New York without the benefit of major New York media coverage via newspaper articles, television appearances, or commercial radio.

Fields' audience was developed by old fashioned get on the telephone promotion combined with email blasts. A significant core of the audience was a group that took a four hour round trip ride from New Haven, Connecticut to see Fields exhibit his warm romantic vocals. The audience was made of well dressed folks who looked good, seemed to be having a good time and felt it was worth their dollar and time to come to a classy venue for a really classy evening out.

The point is this show had a vibrant crowd that was generated by using creative methods of audience development. The audience, club management, artists and the folks selling CD's all had fun. Think about this the next time someone tries to tell you that folks over 30 don't buy music anymore.

Hi Greg

Thanks for being in touch. Hope you and your wife enjoyed a great Easter.

I am glad for the 4 day weekend.

Thanks much for your comments on the poetry. Ultimately I want to publish at some point. I have many more.

I am curious to know how do you choose who you feature on your show?

Incidentally, a new friend here, Wayne Cobham says his grandmother is from Christ Church as well.

Have a great week and look forward to hearing you again.

Hello Greg,

I'm really enjoying your Jazz It Up show. I saw several people on the video that I have worked with before. Namely, Imani Winds. I perform a Josephine Baker show with them. Small world. Hope to stay in touch with you.

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!
