Tell us a little about your background...
With the mid-March release of his new album, THE CYCLE OF LOVE (Brown Records), trumpet virtuoso Maurice Brown takes a giant step forward as an internationally acclaimed musician, composer, bandleader, and performer. Brown’s soulful melodies and infectious personality are a dynamic package that uniquely marries traditional be-bop to hip-hop. Six years after his debut album, HIP TO BOP, hit the jazz world with staggering force, Brown is back.

Brown displayed a remarkable affinity for the trumpet at a young age, receiving a full scholarship to NIU. After winning first place in the esteemed National Miles Davis Trumpet Competition, Maurice continued his studies at Southern University in Baton Rouge, working with famed clarinetist Alvin Batiste. In 2002, Brown relocated to a pre-Katrina New Orleans. He shared the stage with numerous jazz legends, including Clark Terry, Johnny Griffin, and Ellis Marsalis. He was a weekly headliner at the city’s premiere jazz club, Snug Harbor.

In 2004, at age 23, he recorded his first album as a bandleader, HIP TO BOP. His critically acclaimed debut foreshadowed Maurice’s unique talent for expanding the boundaries of bop-inflected jazz. Unfortunately, Katrina’s devastation didn’t spare Maurice, who lost his home and many of his musical artifacts. Brown took his talent to Brooklyn. He reformed his jazz quintet, The Full Effect and also resurrected his hip-hop/funk combo, Soul'd U Out. His versatility surfaced on recordings with Aretha Franklin, Talib Kweli, Wyclef Jean, Cee-Lo, De La Soul, The Roots, and Diddy.

His 2010 international tour begins in March, with dates in Jakarta, New Delhi, and the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. To quote the legendary trumpeter, Clark Terry: “Brownie is the young trumpeter to watch for sure. I see young cats all over the world and Maurice has it.” And THE CYCLE OF LOVE delivers it.

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!
