I believe that singers are born and not raised...

I was born a singer. Singing is what comes most naturally to me. I always had an innate affinity for music and song. My father was a trumpet player and my mother played the phonograph and the radio. I grew up in the 1950's when the popular music of the day was the Great American Songbook and the Popular Standards featuring the best talent of the century. There are anecdotal stories of me singing into a wooden spoon as if it were a microphone at age two or three. I am told that one of the songs… Continue

In 1986 Danny Barker published his biography: A Life In Jazz (edited by Alyn Shipton.) He also co-authored a study of the New Orleans Jazz heritage, with Jack V. Buerkle, entitled: Bourbon Street Black, as well as a posthumous release: Buddy Bolden and The Last Days of Storyville – also edited by Shipton. Danny's writing is a substantial body of work that examines… Continue

Singer Pianist Peter Cincotti Rocks!

Having just received our preview copy of Singer-pianist Peter Cincotti's newest release "East of Angel Town", I sat immediately sat down in the studio to take it in. Before I turned the speakers on, memories of the 19 year old's debut in 2003 came back with greatfondness.. "I changed the rules".. "Ain't Misbehavin".. "Comes Love".. the entire album announcing the arrival of fresh talent for us older jazzers. It has been a good while since the last studio release "on the moon" (2004) which I… Continue

Jammin' with Classical Musicians from Italy

Today in my job as a hospital musician and music program coordinator for Shands Arts in Medicine at the University of Florida (www.cathydewitt.com/music_in_medicine), I had some unexpected fun! Through our partnership with our Performing Arts Center, the Interpreti Veneziani string ensemble played for patients and staff on several units at the hospital. They were wonderful, doing a repertoire of Vivaldi, Pachelbel, and more. Later, as they waited in the lobby to be picked up, I started playing… Continue

New Tunes - PDFOP

Just posted 2 studio tracks from PDFOP, an original project I'm involved in. This is electric music, influenced somewhat by Bill Frissell, RTF, Mahavishnu Orchestra, and Jack DeJohnette's early 80's bands. It's fairly composed, but not without room to leave one's own stamp on things.

Check 'em out when you get a minute.

LENNY BRUCE, JAZZ FAN

Bret Primack, legendary jazz writer and producer known as the "Jazz Video Guy" has produced a wonderful film short focusing on the influential comic, Lenny Bruce, and his relationship to jazz. Here's the link on YouTube:

Need a Booking Agent







Have a great band, Vortex Tribe, which is Mingo Lewis' band. Mingo grew up with Monk and Miles as household guests so he was fairly well exposed before he ever started playing congas. He left Santana (which he started with when he was 15) to play with Chick Corea and Return to Forever. His discography grows from there. What many don't know is that many of Al Di Meola's songs and the major hits… Continue

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!
