TRIBUTE TO SAMMY NESTICO

THE BOB NOVAL ORCHESTRA

SHELLEY BURNS ~ ACCENTUATE

TRIBUTE TO JOHNNY MERCER

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!

The Art Of Emptying Bottles



Every time I empty a bottle of vinegar, wine, or oil

I think of my Italian grandfather (who had the romantic name of Valentino DiSalvo)



and how he’d bet people that he could get 30 or 40 or 50

or more drops out of a seemingly empty bottle.



I can hear him making this statement in broken English

to the neighborhood people in his corner grocery store.



They gather around a wooden table, their shoes… Continue

MYSTIC MOTIVES

I am walking on clouds

I‘ve got no wings

Friend Prophet shouts

While the wind sings



I float from my past

Rich in experience

Weightless hence fast

Homeless in Universe



I levitate above Earth

I drift from my past

Don’t remember my birth

Pilgrim among stars



Homeless in Universe

I send a kiss to Mars

It’s a blast not a curse

Pilgrim among stars



On shooting star’s hand

I´ll fly to the… Continue

The Travelin' Party Club





Hey Everybody!!



My friends and I are members of the Travelin' Party Club and we are always in search of places to travel to and party! This also means that we are in constant search of artist that will be performing in club settings in the MD, WVA, VA, DC, NC and SC areas.

A Man Called Baba - Fela ( THE HIGH PRIEST OF AFRO JAZZ )

I remember seeing him for the first time just as if it was yesterday. Through the clouds of smoke and altered by the “come hither” glow of red and blue bulbs that ordained the club, he stood with relative ease…. an omnipotent symbol of a bold and angry new Africa.



I was instantly mesmerized and would be for life.





He was bare chested and seemed oblivious to the thin film of sweat that defied the cool wind being dispersed by huge ceiling fans above and that covered his… Continue

About Linda - a music story

Growing up in Montreal in the 60s, I heard music from artists like Michelle Richard, Ginette Reno and Robert Charlebois. At home, my Dad had the radio dial set firmly to the English speaking station, CJAD, that featured news and easy listening stuff like Percy Faith and Tom Jones.



My first musical awakening came around the age of 10, while watching a local TV variety show called Like Young. One day Wilson Pickett came to town and the show invited him to appear. I remember my brother… Continue

When is it no longer Jazz?

Well I seem to be forging right along with my questions of the week, so here we go. I work with a lot of jazz 'purists' on the trad scene. Some of them even insist that 'scatting' takes away from the tunes of the Great American Songbook. I do a lot of blues, but I feel that jazz and blues are holding hands so that's okay to me. However, now that Real2thebone has raised the question of What is Smooth Jazz, I'll take it further and ask, "When does it stop being jazz?". Is there a beat or phrase… Continue
