Just arrived

Hi Jazz Network,

I'm not a musician, club owner or music producer. My connection to jazz is two-fold and pretty low-key: I love it and I host a weekly jazz program on WRFR-LP FM in Rockland, Maine. Your site caught my eye and my ear and here I am. Glad to have found you!

Would this type of thing happen to Kenny G?

I received an email this morning with this picture and article from a new family member Chancelor Howell. This is the state of jazz that we must change in dealing with promoters that make promises and don't keep them.…

More Lyric Poetry

Joni Mitchell’s Gift

Joni Mitchell sat down in your way

Distracting you from wispy bones

And brittle, cropped hair

Keeping you anchored to the path

The one you scatter unknowingly

With petals of colorful love

Sowing seeds of hope and promise

Which grow strong with the loyally devoted

For they are light and buoyant

Because of you they move

In rhythms and soaring tones

Recalling tunes so vividly…

memories and musings - more lyric poetry


Picking blueberries alone in the woods

A sad and lonely hay ride

To the cold head stones of the quarry

A red bird sat on the window sill

Waiting for his soul to fly

Red hair, red blood, a red bird

And my red eyes

Planting forget-me-knots over his head

Seasons changed and time’s train

Left a clouds of sorrow in her path

A red bird sat on his gravestone

Waiting to say good-bye

Red hair, red blood, a red…

Out of This World

(In Memory of John Coltrane)

Shadowed nightspot

sister beaded and hooped

beards, afros


On platform

the connoisseur of alto

and his entourage

conjure aural sorcery


to sojourn in darkness

resonance and color

Inside Indigo hued

rhythms of Blackness unbound

To journey with immortality

in Coltrane's mode

Glide on azure notes -

wings fashioned of… Continue

"Audiophile Audition" gives "Good Hair" a Thumbs Up!

John Henry of "Audiophile Audition" gives a thumbs-up to Musique Noire's CD, "Good Hair".

Excerpt: "The instrumentation may seem a bit unusual, but the clever arrangements bring it all together in an exciting and tuneful fashion. Some of the string quartet/crossover albums have not quite gotten it in the groove, but Musique Noir (sic) i…

Monthly Archives
































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!
