June 3. (Wed.) Gaea Schell. And here’s another blonde jazz singer/pianist from Canada, with a brisk sense of swing and an appealing way with a phrase. Must be something in the water up there. Vibrato Grill Jazz.

I am not a Musicologist; I just use my ears. I am sure that many scholars have done studies and analyses on the rhythmic patterns known as Clave. I have not sought out these thoughts and, admittedly have not given the time necessary to read up on the subject. Nevertheless, I am a musician and have plenty to deal with in actually playing “in Clave” – and in so doing, always striving for more command and authority. It's true, “The more I get, the more I want – it seems.” Like anything else… Continue

This has been an amazing week for me. Besides closing the book on a couple of negative situations that tried to lurk in my life, I did a healthy amount of live playing to new and familiar folks.
Starting with last Sunday, I performed in a warm and happy reunion with my old partner Treavor Walton at the 16th Anniversary of Moontribe. (There's a new pic, thanks to Maggie Houtz in the photo section telling the story.) That was a unique situation which revitalized my energy and… 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."
