*^#!nightmare*#! i'll tell you about it sometime.i like this networking idea!i'll call you again if anything comes up.
Hi Tommy. Thanks for the positive comment on my track. On your question about Spain and Ireland, hmmmm that's a long story. In short my life took an unusual path in that I won a scholarship to Bennington College in Vermont, There I specialised in jazz voice, political studies and Spanish. The Spanish took me to Granada University in Spain. I loved Spain. It was so different than inner city Philly, as you can imagine, and I stayed there, basically. And I developed my musical career there. With regard to Ireland, well I married an Irish man in 2006 but, at the moment, we live between Dublin and Barcelona. All of this might be down to my father, who was a renowned jazz pianist and he toured Europe a lot, always coming back with stories of other cultures and cities. Sorry, a bit long winded, but you asked:) Vx
Ahhh Paradise, nice way to start the day as a backdrop, thanks for joining us here in The Jazz Network Tommy....hope you enjoy networking, making new friends and collaborating with some great artistry. Have a ball.
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."
