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!

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."

It's only about two hours from Cedar Rapids to Decorah. I checked and, yes, we did post that gig, although I didn't have your name:

February 15, 2008 - “Josephine Baker: a Life of Le Jazz Hot”; 7:30 pm; Center for Life, Main Hall, Luther College, Decorah; $21 adults, $19 students and senior citizens; Luther College Box Office, 563-387-1357; http://programming.luther.edu.

I've invited people to send announcements when they are going to be in Eastern Iowa to JazzinEIowa@bigfoot.com

I look forward to the opportunity to hear you live, sometime.

I just left Decorah, Iowa doing a Josephine Baker show with Imani Winds in February. How close are the two places? Either way, glad to say I've been to Iowa.

Musically yours,
