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!

Jimmy McPartland On Piano Jazz

Revisit this 1990 episode featuring the legendary cornetist as he teams up with his wife, host Marian McPartland, to perform "St. James Infirmary."

Marian McPartland: A Centennial Celebration

No jazz musician has ever been heard more on public radio than the late Marian McPartland. But for all her ubiquity, how well did we really know her?

Review: August Greene, 'August Greene'

August Greene, the supergroup featuring Common, Karriem Riggins and Robert Glasper, peers at the state of the black union through a jazzy, hip-hop lens.

Carol Sloane On Piano Jazz

Sloane's command of The Great American Songbook is unmatched. Revisit this singer's performance of standards such as "Cheek to Cheek" in this 2002 episode.

Where are you located?
Seattle, WA, USA
What is your affiliation to the Jazz World?
Musical Artist
Tell us a little about your background...
Terra Shivaiya, Six East-Six West is the culmination of recording over several years at different times with different musicians. It is truly a fusion in the sense that it was recorded on two continents, in three different studios, with musicians from the traditions of Jazz, Latin, Brazilian, Indian Classical, and African all contributing.

All these people are in my circle of musical friendships, and I wanted to share that experience of discovery, revelation, and unique creativity that can arise when talented people from diverse backgrounds collaborate.
Not to mention the lifelong friendships that arise as well.

Hope you like it - please share the music with friends!
Cheers, Yogi McCaw

Seattle Jazz Scene meetup and other stuff

Posted on May 23, 2010 at 6:09pm 0 Comments

Hey Everyone, I'll be posting up more gigs on the PNW scene group page now. Also, I want to let you all know I am the organizer of a meetup group

Seattle Jazz Scene meetup

If you are a Seattle-area jazzer, join up and email me your gigs there so I can post them up. Our 'meetups' are actually just listing everybody's gigs. The emphasis is on Seattle…


Pacific Northwest Scene

Posted on November 10, 2009 at 10:54am 0 Comments

Hey Everyone,

I started a group for Pacific Northwest Artists here on TJN awhile back . I'm trying to promote it so it gains some energy. Search it up in the groups. I emailed many people and told them to sign up. Also, if you are a NW artist go over there and give it some juice. You don't have to have a new album or gig, although that's nice if you can plug it there. Just give us a holler, tell of your favorite PNW jazz hang, or some of your fave PNW artists, or just say hi. As it… Continue

It's happening!

My group is featured on the front page of TJN this week.

I would like to thank JaiJai for being superhuman, utterly astounding , and otherwise all-around amazing. She put up all my stuff and answered my incessant emails. She is an incredibly busy lady. I don't know how she balances it all out, but however she does it, it sure is working!

I want to encourage all you indie artiests out there to get it together, make a good recording, and have it featured up here. This place… Continue

Terra Shivaiya release coming soon

Posted on March 23, 2009 at 12:36pm 0 Comments

Hi everyone,

I am still waiting for the online sales outlets (Amazon, Rhapsody, iTunes, etc) to finish processing my info and then the CD will be for sale (probably within four weeks or so). I wanted to go ahead and post up the songs and related info here anyway so that my fellow jazzheads could get an early taste of the material. All the songs, in their entirety, are here on the TJN site. So enjoy them! Always welcome to hear your responses!

Just getting started on the jazz network

Posted on March 2, 2008 at 11:39am 0 Comments

I'm just getting going on here. I need to put up songs, testimonials, and pics and then I think it will be good to go. I think there's a good market segment for this that separates the jazz musicians out from the masses on myspace. Hopefully listeners and promoters will use this resource to find people like me and get some collaborations/shows/projects going that will help everybody and the help the music.Cheers.
