Tell us a little about your background...
I worked in the record business for many years, including several jazz labels. I have been involved and a great fan of jazz for a few decades now. I am a jazz vocalist, lyricist, photographer, and artist in several mediums. And I try and play a little guitar sometimes too!

I checked out your page in the Jazz Network. Nice playing! When you get a moment please check out my free guitar lesson page at: http://www.bluesandjazzguitar.blogspot.com/ pass it on to friends, students and anyone who likes jazz guitar. I’m trying to promote jazz and blues guitar.
Julie, I play a Comins 17" Classic (http://www.cominsguitars.com) but the one in the photo is a Chester Avenue. That photo was taken at a concert in Camden North Carolina and Jerry Sims found another Comins for me to use while I was down there (so that mine wouldn't be at the mercy of the airlines!)
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."
