SPOTLIGHTED ARTISTS AND BUSINESSES:


TRIBUTE TO SAMMY NESTICO

THE BOB NOVAL ORCHESTRA

SHELLEY BURNS ~ ACCENTUATE

TRIBUTE TO JOHNNY MERCER

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!

I SAY THAT BECAUSE I HAVE TWO HOURS TO INTRODUCE IMPROVISED MUSIC, EVERY MONDAY TO 21.00 PM AT WWW.RADIOLESTE345FM.COM.BR THIS SITE IS UNDER RE-PAGE RIGHT NOW. PEKKA, I AM PROUD TO SAY, MY JAZZ RADIO PROGRAM IS THE MOST HEARDED BRAZILIAN RADIO SHOW IN SOUTH BRAZIL. MY LISTENERS ALSO LISTEN THE USA JAZZ FM RADIOS, BUT THEY KNOW IS VERY IMPORTANT TO DIVULGE JAZZ IN BRAZIL. I WRITE THIS MESSAGE IN HOPE GET CD-PROMOTE TO PLAY AT STATION. THINK ABOUT.
