Profile Information

Where are you located?
New York
What is your affiliation to the Jazz World?
Musical Artist
Tell us a little about your background...
I am a pianist/percussionist/composer. I used to consider myself to be a strictly jazz musician. Now, I simply refer to myself as a musician. I get equally as much pleasure from listening to Milton Nascimento as I do hearing a Wayne Shorter ballad. I recognize spiritual kinship between Flora Purim and Sade, Erik Satie and Monk, Pablo Neruda's love poems and Luther Vandross' lyrics.

Hey Kwame, I thought about that, but first he'd have to FIND the yearbook :-). I'm sure we all will re-connect sometime in the near future.

Peace

Hey Kwame, Gee Renee here. Thanks for the comments on Levi's music. I mentioned you to him, using both names, but he didn't remember you from M&A. It's been so long ago, but I'm sure once he sees your photo or hears some of your music, he'll make the connection.

Let's stay in touch!

Peace & Blessings
Gee Renee!

Hi Kwame, sorry for my late response. I was then on my way from Germany to London and so I didn't have time.
Now I've listened and enjoyed the the "Bedroom Eyes"
Very interesting.
Blessings

Yep,
It feels like I was there for the inspiration, but better yet, maybe it's better I wasn't,if you know what I mean, and I know you do. Bad-ass music as always. Keep It up and Let's have some more aural candy.

Thanks for hollering back Kwame!:) Yeah, I really enjoyed meeting Amiri Baraka in may '06 at the Blue Note where the legendary, McCoy Tyner, was playing along with Ravi Coltrane,etc.. Take care & stay cool!:) Peace...N

Hey, Noelle!!! Thanks for hollerin'. Yeah, things are going as well as can be expected. I will be posting some "snapshot versions" of my compositions on this site soon. Gil Scott-Heron is one of my all-time spoken word poets along with the Last Poets and Amiri Baraka. I became a spoken word poet largely because of their influences on my world view. In the meantime I'll do my best to keep in touch.

Blessings Kwame, just saying "heyy" & hoping all things are well!:) Watching "Black Wax" by Gil Scott-Heron. He had a great band as well as being prolific as a speaker/vocalist/poet,etc..Will catch up soon to see if you have some cool music suggestions as well as hearing a few more from your fellow friends here!:) Peace...N:)

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!
