My Soul Says Sing

As far back as I can recall my soul has insisted that I sing.  Incessantly it played a haunting melody interrupted only by the sound of the radio or someone else singing.  Even then, it played on to its own divine rhythm, just a bit softer so I could hear the other melodies. 

My body responds to rhythms and melodies whenever and wherever sound is sensed.  “Shut up! don’t sing while you are eating,” I remember my maternal grandmother commanding me.  Useless.  There…

Somethin' Else Man! SoulTracks digs Tony Adamo

In a musical world full of posturing and posing, Tony Adamo is the real thing.  An artist who just oooozes cool, he's been pleasing West Coast audiences for awhile with his absolutely authentic sound.

Tony has a hot new album that gives his jazzy take on songs old and new, and we're absolutely loving his cover of Tower of Power's great song,…

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

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!
