How I feel about JaZZ

I believe that jazz is THE art form that found me. I love a great conversation and the improvisational ensembles that i have had the pleasure of performing with have been just that (but w/ instruments of course). Jazz is the art form that enables me to stretch my wings as far as i can and soar into a blissful "soundscape". There have been purely magical experiences when performing --this feeling i am constantly striving for. Though not always achieved, when i get there , it's sheer heaven (man , i live for that).

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This will certainly be the definitive source on improvisational jazz. A leader in the field, Berliner (ethnomusicology, Northwestern) covers all aspects of improvisation as art form, science, and way of life. Cutting no corners, he includes a vast range of article topics (from inspiration and arrangements to evaluation and audience interaction), music…

John Coltrane - My Favorite Things

Posted on January 23, 2008 at 2:42am 0 Comments

I decided to play my satellite TV jazz radio station thru my stereo system today. I listened to a schmorgasborg of really good jazz , then , I get up and go get my laundy , come back in the room and there it was......My Favorite Things (John Coltrane) is playing. Now this is one of my fist jazz cd's and i remember the feeling when i purchased it at a used cd store like it was yesterday. I have to tell you i fell in love with this record all over again. That steady tempo, McCoy tyner's…

Thanks for adding me on here! I'd like to introduce myself. I'm a jazz saxophone player -- Been one all my life. Started playing gigs in New York City when I was 15 years old. Now I live in Houston, and I released my debut album last year. I'd played on lots of other artists' albums, but I was always more focused on live performances for myself. I'm pretty happy with my album though! If you are interested you can check it out: http://larryslezak.com/blog/buy-the-album/.

If you get a chance, I'd love to learn more about you! Message me back if you have time.

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!

Buster Williams
