How did you hear about the Jazz Network? Please give full name of contact
Ms Karin Parker loves to delight listeners with her sound, range of musical choices and warm personality. Parker is engaging and continues to capture the hearts of everyone. “Performing is a great pleasure. To promote the beauty, joy and magnificent history of America's original art form, is an obligation of every jazz singer,instrumentalist and composer." THERE'S something about the way Karin Parker sings that commands attention. It's her tone and approach that makes you soon realize that a song is being sung by a performer who's taste and style adds new dimensions to every tune she touches. It's her treatment of a song that makes Karin Parker more than just another vocalist. The intimacy and warmth of her jazz style began developing the night she walked into Wally's Jazz Cafe', Boston's historical jazz institution, she listened to the band awhile, decided to ask to “sit in” and sing a song. This particular club accommodates nothing less than pure Jazz credibility. On that night, Karin Parker rededicated herself to a new vocation. At Wally's she got to hone her vocal chops with emerging talents . That's where a girl learns to win over a tough room and quick! “Aside from working with amazing musicians, there was the availed opportunity to absorb and learn the importance of dicipline and dedication to musicianship, as well as a sense of the traditions and history of this great fine art called jazz

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!
