Songwriter's Monthly Mid May Update

Thanks to everyone who has signed on in these early stages! Please remember to tell your friends and fans about this online only version of the former print only magazine. The more people involved, the more everyone will be able to get out of this site. I think it would be amazing if writers hooked up with each other, artists traded gigs in their home towns, indie films and publishers and artists and fans wanting custom-made songs could post here for free. If anyone has any ideas on what could… Continue

RIP Waymon Tisdale

I never had the pleasure of meeting this gentle giant, but I enjoyed him in the NBA where he was an all star for a dozen years prior to embarking on an equally successful career as a Jazz bassist. A class act through and through, he will be greatly missed

Eyes Shining

I saw eyes shine

Out of well-moulded brown face

Formed just so - conveying the grace

Of the Master Potter -

A form calling for touch

(But not too much)

Calling for fingers to reach up

And trace eyelids

And cheekbones gently curved -

Ever so slightly defined (their fullness partly hid)

By the softly stretched skin

Of a half-smile -

A smile just waiting -

Waiting for the right stimulus

To make it full -

And perhaps a… Continue

NEW CD RELEASE "BREAKING SKIN/ROMPIENDO EL CUERO AND REVIEW OF JOHNNY CONGA

Breaking Skin / Rompiendo El Cuero

CD (Johnny Conga 2009-001), Released 2009;

Editor's Pick:

If you missed this recording the first time it was issued in the 90s, here’s your chance to check out, remastered, and with some new cuts thrown in for good measure. The core of this CD is a swinging, danceable Latin jazz album with lots of tasty ritmos and satisfying solos, and it still sounds fresh today. Johnny Conga grew up in the Bronx in the 60s and 70s, playing with the likes of… Continue

Is there such a thing as protection from one's self? Danny Barker emphatically characterized Ferdinand “Jelly Roll” Morton as: “eager,” and “independent” and, “defiant.”

Members

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!
