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!

Unconditional Love

Profile Information

Where are you located?
Barcelona and Dublin
Tell us a little about your background...
I was born in PHILADELPHIA. My father, Paul Curry, was a professional musician of the first rank and I grew up surrounded by music. He was a jazz pianist-arranger-composer-conductor, who toured extensively with his own quartet and devised and arranged for internationally famous tap dancer Gregory Hines and played with most of the greats, including Sarah Vaughn and Ella Fitzgerald, both seminal influences on my ambitions to sing.

I have performed in many places and on many stages, recorded with many artists and on various labels. However, it is in recent years that I have found my own style and voice as a singer and composer, particularly in collaboration with the great jazz pianist from Barcelona, Jaume Vilaseca.

In 2008 I released my first solo album entitled Unconditional Love.

How sad, not Michael Jackson's death but his life. No talent is worth the suffering he endured as a child and as an adult. I mourn the life lost. 'Fame is the downside of being successful at what I do' Nick Kershaw'

A rare moment

Posted on February 16, 2009 at 1:05pm 0 Comments

This is a rare moment in history, as we live through change on a daily basis. I think we should embrace this change and not be frightened or paralyzed, the way we have been for so long without knowing it. This is our chance to be free and to take control of our own lives. The most important and powerful thing on the planet is the human brain and now is the time to use it, both individually and collectively. It's time!
