Hey, bro. Kwesi. It's been a while and I have to tell you that I'm enjoying listening to your playing, especially your touch and phrasing. I just submitted one of my most recent pieces to this site as well. The piece is a re-arrangement of an acoustic jazz piece I wrote back in 2004 for an ex-girlfried I painfully miss. I named the piece 'Bedroom Eyes' which was my nickname for her. Hope you enjoy.
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."
