Karrin Allyson Live in San Diego

Karrin Allyson divided up her very tasty one and a half hour set at the Seville Theater, in San Diego, into three parts. She did some gutsy blues, some suave Brazilian and some very traditional jazz lines, such as Jordu, all to an appreciative sold out audience. With a very steady and supporting group in back of her she displayed her now classic and very identifiable voice to perfection. Backed by Guitarist, Larry Koonse, bassist, Tom Warrington and Todd Strait on drums, whether playing the… Continue

Drumming in Griffith Park

Greetings:



It's June 22, 2008 - it has been as hot as a miner’s oven here in Southern California. I was out at the woodshed up in Griffith Park yesterday. Hot, but it was beautiful. I had a good time, did some good playing, some good sheding, drank lots of water, and poured tons of water over my head to cool down after each 1 hour (or more) solo drumming session. The beauty of playing outdoors is something that I simply cannot get enough of. Mother Nature, the wildlife, the… Continue

Song Believabilty

17 June, 08



A good singer does not have to live what he or she sings.They are a vessel of communication. If they are doing their craft right, they should be able to get the writer's intent across to the listener.

Billie Holiday and Frank Sinatra were exceptions. They personally experienced many things they sang about taking it to the highest level of communication. They made it sound like they were singing directly to you - this is art!

When a modern day songstress…

RIP BUNNY, THANK YOU FOR A LIFE OF GREAT MUSIC

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!

Buster Williams
