Boots Don’t Make You Bootsy

Vibe-rant yellow boots and silver leaf bag suits,

impenetrable vinyl so the chemicals aren't liable

to leak into you or ruin your processed do.

Change up the groove from double time, blood,

"Breakwater" appears to be ready for a flood.

At first I wondered why you were in a shower room,

now I get the point that your gear is waterproof,

Tell me do you merely clean up crime scenes,

or slosh through sewers, drains,… Continue

Which Candidate for President Will Do More For Jazz?

Now we know that Bill Clinton plays sax, but does Hillary like jazz?

I heard that Ann Marie Wilkins is working for the Obama campaign. Since she manages Harry Connick and Branford and runs Marsalis Music, does this mean Obama is good for jazz?

Please send me your comments!

I'm curious if anyone knows!

Hey Guys: Thanks for all the wonderful feedback about my new "Groovin' U" CD. I really appreciate it. Your comments of "Album of the year..," "Smooth and exciting," to simply "WOWWW!" really makes my day.

For those of you familiar with by work with Brass Construction, BT Express and Skyy, Raphael Cameron, et. al, I know this album is quite a departure from my usual funk/soul/R&B dance fare. However, I believe as an artist, writer and producer, one has to constantly allow for… Continue

She is the densest darkness of the woods;

impenetrable until daylight, and even then,

pit-falled and precarious.

You think you can avoid her if you wait until morning,

but she’s a vapor that creeps though the cracks of any room

like Radon - undetectable by canary or aqueduct trout.

I glance up from my book and she’s appeared.

Her head tilted like a Jikata listening

for the strains of a song.

Teeth slightly… Continue

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.

Why Arrangers make lousy copyists...and vice versa....

Hmmm...this is a topic I've talked about almost my entire career as a music copyist/arranger...which is almost always goes unchecked...This is a simple thing to do...copying music from music scores...it's not that hard???...or is it???...it's not as easy as some think...it takes a really good copyist to find out what the hell the arrangers point of view is and make the song (written wise...i mean) the way the arranger wrote it...and also to be as flawless as…

Inspiration is so hard to come by, and so easy to lose; but when it DOES come, it comes from such unexpected places!

So not long after my last post, I found myself again complaining to a friend of mine about the piece I was working on, and how frustrated I was with my inability to play it. The frustration would quicly cause me to put my instrument down and walk away for a day or two. And it ended like this:

On Music Improvisation

On Music Improvisation

Improvisation is the purest form of music. It is not associated with style or precedent but rather with total listening, a form of meditation in action. Total listening

Waiting For Fagen

I’m up, with my ear to the universe again

listening and waiting for Fagen.

I stare at his latest portrait;

his graying stubble and well worn lines,

the wicked double waves of his protruding lips.

I study the backgrounds of his photographs;

try to make out the titles of the books on his shelves,

the tiny models of buildings, the ornate clock on his desk.

I pore over the precise way he holds his… Continue

Monthly Archives
































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!

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.
