Tell us a little about your background...
Born into a deeply rooted musical family, Larry Brown Jr., started plucking his father's guitar strings at the age of five. Brown hails from the small town of Venice, IL., east of downtown St. Louis which has been the home of great blues legends such as Shirley Brown and Albert King. It is family church in Venice where we listened and began to play for the church choir. After high school Larry attended Southern Illinois University Edwardsville (SIUE) to study with legendary 7-string guitarist Rick Haydon, trombonist Brett Stamps, bassist Tom Kennedy and pianist Reggie Thomas. As an undergraduate, Larry was educated on the essential elements of jazz through numerous clinics presented by some of the elite names in jazz. Larry has had the opportunity to learn from jazz legends such as Pat Martino, Houston Person, Jimmy Cobb, Victor Goines, Bucky and John Pizzarelli, Bill Stewart, John Scofield and Russell Malone to name a few. Brown has also been able to work with legends in jazz such as Curtis Fuller, Lou Soloff and Hamiet Bluiett. Larry has performed around the country and in many of the great venues in his native city St. Louis at venues such as the Sheldon Concert Hall, Finale and the Edward Jones Dome; as well as performed across the country in jazz clubs like Dizzys and jazz festivals like the Clark Terry Jazz Festival and The JVC Jazz Festival. This March, Larry will be participating in the Betty Carter Jazz Ahead residency. Larry is now attending graduate school at Northern Illinois University where he looks to become a performer and educator under tutorage of Fareed Haque, Willie Pickens and Ron Carter.

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!
