Aspen bound

Posted on October 25, 2011 at 4:26pm 0 Comments


I am heading to Aspen, and the Roaring Forks Valley, in Colorado and will be gigging in the region through March of 2012. The scenery is breathtaking and the vibes are highly free-spirited. If you find yourself on the Western slopes of the Rockies this winter, drop me a line. Perhaps we can hook up,




Be The Change

Posted on March 29, 2009 at 9:49pm 0 Comments

Hi and blessings!

Although I've not physically met Steven Charles, or Karen Greene, or you yet, it is true we are much more alike, than we are different.

Steven and Karen both agree that the best way to promote this jazzy culture is to "Be the change you want to see". (Gandhi).

No good comes of criticizing, condeming, or otherwise complaining about other's tastes in music, or lack of enthusiasm, support, or venue.

It works by working it. "Be the Change" is a great mantra or… Continue

The diminishing scene?

Posted on February 22, 2009 at 4:00pm 2 Comments

I am exploring the music scenes in many of our cities this spring and looking to settle into a new groove and life somewhere. In discussions with many of you about your experiences and perspectives on venues, support, art, and general vibe around your towns, I hear lots of concerns about a diminishing jazz scene and gig opportunities across the board. Some are looking for ways to revitalize, or otherwise promote, jazzy haps at every turn. Lots of the commentary is forelorn, pessimistic, and is… Continue

Spiritual Solutions

Posted on February 18, 2009 at 1:23am 0 Comments

There is a spiritual solution, to every problem. It is a law.

If you are suffering, and you will suffer at some time it is inevitable and guaranteed, remember there is a spiritual solution that will lessen your suffering and even end it. There is no ONE single spiritual prinicpal that is the answer to the exclusion of any particular other, but, the answers are always spiritual. What does "spiritual" mean? Simply, "what is not physical, or "that which has no form". So, whatever you want to… Continue

Vid...nice to make your acquaintence. As for the club scene here, there certainly are some opportunities...but to be perfectly honest, they are rather slim in what I think you are after. Still, if someone were "positively" aggressive and made their own themselves into a situation... anything is possible. I was touring through here about 27 years ago and thought it was a nice, clean city...great weather..all that. I got plugged in pretty good and have basically been here ever since. So... That can be true of ANYWHERE. I wish you all the best. Give me a shout when you are through Charlotte in April. I'm working on a Broadway show uptown...maybe you will be playing somewhere around. Places to consider playing... Blue.. Ruth's a google for nightlife in uptown Charlotte. All the best...

Hey, Vid -

Happy to hang out with and introduce you around. Hit me at


















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!

Wayne Shorter Travels The Spaceways

A new album by the octogenarian saxophonist is always a big deal, but his latest — and the winner of the 2018 Jazz Critics Poll — is also just plain big: 3 discs and an 84-page graphic novel.

The 2018 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll

Over 130 critics voted on the best jazz albums of 2018 — celebrated elders dominated the top of the results, but a class of younger musicians is rising.

Friends of the show offer memories and music of pianist Cecil Taylor, Village Vanguard owner Lorraine Gordon, South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela and trumpeter Roy Hargrove.
