"Hello Jai Jai, Steve Getz, just sent me an email, I would like for him to review my C.D. and he said for me to holla at you. Hope all is well with you, let me know what I need to do. Thank you, Victor Orlando."
Hey Victor! You are very welcome and the praise is much deserved. Yes, it is nice to have cats listen and enjoy and then comment positively. Let`s you know that you`re on the right track! I see JaiJai gave you a great plug on her message to producers, agents etc. Good stuff! Keep slammin` my brother, and I hope we can hook up one day! Sincerely, IZ
I heard that. It would be nice to think that all of us could write letters, etc. to get things changed. But the big boys (pop mostly) with the big bucks are always going dominate. Still it may be worth a try to get all of us Academy jazz cats actively involved.
My bad!! I heard "Argentina" in the lyrics but read "Argentia" in the title and thought the was an error in spelling... Not intentionally of course, but I didn't put 2 and 2 together... I guess I should pay more attention to the lyrics!! (never been my strongsuit)
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."
