AIN'T NO SUNSHINE

JESSE CAMPBELL

THIS IS RAY BROWN JR.

RAY BROWN JR.

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!

Review: The Bad Plus, 'Never Stop II'

Each album by The Bad Plus can be understood as a planted flag, a marker of group identity. Hear the jazz trio's first record with new pianist Orrin Evans.

Songs We Love: Kat Edmonson, 'Old Fashioned Gal'

On the first single from Old Fashioned Gal, Edmonson pines for a respite from pop-up ads and notifications, for a phone "inextricably connected to a wall."

Tell us a little about your background...
I started playing piano at the age of seven. This gave me my first actual musical experience with an instrument. It didn't work out, however, due to the fact that we did not have a piano, and the lessons after a while became too difficult. At the age of 12, I started playing brass instruments in school. I played trumpet, french horn, trrombone, baritone horn, and tuba. It was the tuba that brought everything together for me, and then made playing the other instruments possible! Around this same time I had gotten interested in song writing. This interest resulted in me getting a guitar after being infuenced by Tommy DeVito of The Four Seasons. My music teacher, Joe Kennedy, loaned me an album by a guitarist who I had never heard of, named Wes Montgomery! That album was called Going Out Of My Head, and it changed the direction of my whole life!!! In high school I totally abandoned my academic aspirations, and made up my mind to pursue a career in music. I've been involved in music almost exclusively from then to now. I did take time out to get a diploma in Applied Business Programming, in the computer field in 1979. My pursuit of music has taken me to venues, andrecording studios all over the world. I've had the chance to meet, and work with many interesting, and talented people. Many of these include my idols. Richard "Groove" Holmes, George Benson, Dionne Warwick, Dakota Staton, Joe Williams, Aretha Franklin, Jimmy McGriff, Don Patterson are just a few. Currently I'm freelancing, and doing music production.
