Brand New Same Old Obsessions is not only the title of Justin Thompson's latest release, but it is also the perfect description for his music. Original love songs that combine jazz and pop elements to create a unique sound that is all at once both classic and modern. "It’s just another spin/ On the same old thing again" croons Justin on the opening track, but within a few moments, the listener realizes Justin is not imitating a style, he has created his own musical niche as a singer, songwriter, and guitarist. The result has been applauded by fans and critics alike. He won Nashville’s “Starving Artist Award” for best male artist of 2002 and 2003, and, the Nashville Rage named his debut CD, Tasty Puddin', as one of the years top ten CDs.

While most singer songwriters become competent enough on an instrument to accompany themselves on stage, Justin Thompson can PLAY. After graduating from the Berklee College of Music, he moved to Nashville and quickly became one of the areas most popular jazz guitarists. During his tenure in Music City, he performed with Katharine Wayland (The Squirrel Nut Zippers), Mark O'Connor, John Hartford, Riders in the Sky, The Nashville Chamber Orchestra, David Grier, Buddy Spicher, Mandy Barnett, Greg Garing, Kathy Chiavola, The Nashville Mandolin Ensemble, Annie Sellick, and the Gypsy Hombres. As an Hombre, he was voted “Best Jazz Musician of Nashville” and had two best selling CDs -- Cafe Strut and Django Bells. In 2002, Merless International Records re-released Django Bells and it received critical acclaim from around the country including four stars from Down Beat magazine. It was also chosen as the season’s top pick by The New York Times, The Washington Post, USA Today, and NPR’s “All Songs Considered.”

Now located in New York City, Justin is touring venues ranging from festivals such as South By Southwest to black tie affairs including Nashville's Swan Ball (alongside Tony Bennett) to college campuses, house concerts, and jazz clubs scattered throughout the United States. Call today to experience his music on your stage, and discover for yourself why he is much more than just another spin on the same old thing again.

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!

All The Things You Are: Aretha's Life In Jazz

Jazz was central to Aretha Franklin's musicianship, however far she rambled. Without it we'd be remembering a different artist now, and celebrating a different body of work.

More Than Keeping Time: A Melodic Drumming Demo

Drummers usually make sure beats don't speed up or slow down. But drummer Allison Miller does more than keep time. Watch a demonstration of her unique style of playing called melodic drumming.

Tower Of Power: Tiny Desk Concert

Even from its beginnings in late-'60s Oakland, the band has always stood out. Fifty years later, its devotion to classic horn-driven soul remains unmatched, its passion and precision unchanged.
