Jazz Artist and Musician George W Carroll, a Sarasota, Fl icon is at the center of jazz entertainment in his adopted hometown. In his own words, Carroll says: ''I have no delusions about big time events in the music business itself.'' International Jazz Artist and Vocalist – Jazz Pianist "It's a tough racket, believe me." But sometimes I'm in awe of my own accomplishments during this era of clubs closing left and right. George's data base (locally) of some 1600 + names show up at his performances at clubs, a concert, fund raisers etc. and ‘‘this is very gratifying’’ Carroll says. Our audience gets younger every year. My wife Mary counsels me to just let things evolve and don't over manage or over analyze. Carroll has attracted admirers on the national stage as well including legendary jazz vocalist Mark Murphy who says: "I love what George does with his selections from the American Songbook."Murphy has also called George ''a great player-singer." USA jazz pianist treasure D*** Hyman has called George "a considerable jazz performer and there are several original attractive songs which you present." Presently, George is reaching out to the USA, Asian, and European jazz artist markets trying to attract attention in the area of jazz promoters, jazz festival directors, jazz artist booking agencies, national and international jazz performance venues, et al. Jazz Artist and Composer George has stood on the shoulders of some of the best jazz performers this world has produced and these have gone on to better things. I refer to such luminaries as jazz guitar sensation John Abercrombie, jazz composer/arranger Mandel-esque and jazz pianist Alan Broadbent, Buddy Rich alumna Greg Hopkins, et al. Over the years and through it all George exclaims: ''Music has been my engine.'' Big Band Jazz Quartet Throughout the years, George hasn't stood still regarding leaving his musical legacy. He has self produced some 25 + vocal big band jazz CD projects involving both his big band jazz quartet. Even ''PBS'' produced a 1/2 hour feature on George's career zeroing in on his big band and symphony vocal offerings. Carroll has penned some 10,000 + songs in his musical life and George says "it's fun to get yearly royalties on some of them which are played from Boston to Australia." With his tongue in his cheek, George says ''Have music, will travel." Link to an article from 2008 at All that Jazz -http://www.allaboutjazz.com/php/news.php?id=25911

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!
