Although it's been out for a little over 4 years, I'd like to bring to your attention my CD, Father Time Remembered. It's your classic hard bop quintet, made up of some of the hottest musicians in Portland, Oregon at the time it was made. Besides myself on bass, the band consists of Derek Sims on trumpet, Sam Burton in some of his best playing on tenor, Phil Goldberg on piano and Ron Steen on drums.

The tunes are mostly originals (8 of them), with a couple of less hackneyed standards thrown in for the benefit of timorous radio DJs. The recording is of somewhat variable quality, due to balance issues (having to do with music stand and mike placement), but the music is of uniformly good quality. The CD was reviewed in The Jazzscene (Jazz Society of Oregon) and earned a 4-star rating. That review will be posted separately at a later time.

Some samples from the recording can be found at www.cdbaby.com/cd/lbatpa . CD Baby also has copies of this CD for sale. There will be a sequel to this CD making its appearance sometime between Thanksgiving and Christmas (we'll be recording in October), that will be in electronic release only, at first. Stay tuned!

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!

Different Ways To See And Be: The Lives Of Joseph Jarman And Alvin Fielder

The deaths of two foundational members of the Association for the Advancement of Creative Musicians, a forward-thinking Chicago jazz collective, offers a chance to reflect on its evolving impact.

Wayne Shorter Travels The Spaceways

A new album by the octogenarian saxophonist is always a big deal, but his latest — and the winner of the 2018 Jazz Critics Poll — is also just plain big: 3 discs and an 84-page graphic novel.

The 2018 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll

Over 130 critics voted on the best jazz albums of 2018 — celebrated elders dominated the top of the results, but a class of younger musicians is rising.

'Jazz Night In America' Remembers Artists We Lost In 2018

Friends of the show offer memories and music of pianist Cecil Taylor, Village Vanguard owner Lorraine Gordon, South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela and trumpeter Roy Hargrove.

Nate Chinen's Favorite Albums Of 2018

For NPR Music's jazz critic and the editorial director of WBGO, 2018 was a year that saw music — not just jazz — in the throes of a creative boom, rocketing in many directions.
