Hi Nestor - I wish you joy with your music - So you're an old geezer like me? Hahaha - Thanks for the impressive mini CV - I've played all over the world for 37 years with great musicians - Toto La Momposina, Marco Vinicio Oyaga, John Serry, Paul Dunmall, Carl Orr, Antonio Quijano, Nobuyoshi Ino, Febian Reza Pane, Moussa Kouyate, Mike Ellis, Tom Alexander, and on and on - they were special artists - but very few players today really surprise me - and they used to call jazz 'the sound of surprise - but if I catch myself unawares, I am still able to surprise myself on occasion - I think if we work in a number of styles then of course we are following the former exponents of those styles, breaking free of those shackles is the hard part - for nothing grows in the shadow of great trees . . . In life as in music I am not happy and am always moving on - restless - no rest for the wicked, they say . . . In Tokyo I met a venerable pianist named Red Rogers who had played with Ellington, Coleman Hawkins, Willie the Lion Smith, Bud Freeman, etc, and there he was - playing in a downtown Tokyo piano bar aged over 80, while people talked loud over his gold mine of experience - since this is a lifetime deal - How would you describe your direction in music? What is the nature and purpose of music? Why have so few artists embraced the 'freedom principle'? Why is the audience for jazz shrinking so fast? (Is it because the musicians are too far up themselves? - Haha! I think we should be told - All questions I ask myself regularly . . .

Peace and Love, Beni

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!
