Absolutely wonderful book on Jazz improvisation !!!!

Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

This will certainly be the definitive source on improvisational jazz. A leader in the field, Berliner (ethnomusicology, Northwestern) covers all aspects of improvisation as art form, science, and way of life. Cutting no corners, he includes a vast range of article topics (from inspiration and arrangements to evaluation and audience interaction), music…

Glad I found this community

In just my first day here, I've linked to so many wonderful members and artists in this network. For a while I've gotten out of touch with what's going on in the jazz world. Already I've added Marcus Miller, Brotha.Deep, Mamdouh Bahiri, and Frank McComb's cuts to my collection. I have Jay Lou Ava and Seiko Akita are the list for near future downloads.
Thank you all.

A Story Of Jazz In Sydney

A STORY OF JAZZ IN SYDNEY

The 1970s and 80s were a unique and exceptional time for jazz in Sydney Australia. In the inner city area there was jazz everywhere. every pub, club and restaurant had a jazz group and it wasn't all watered down jazz for the average punter either. The music was new, fresh and vibrant and the people came to hear it in droves.

Sydney is no stranger to jazz, it has a long history of involvement with the music, going back to the 1920s in fact. During the…

As some may already know from the 'About Me' section on this profile this group is comprised of Gene Lake (drums), Gregoire Maret (harmonica) and myself...Federico Gonzalez Pena…

Music and Marriage

So here's todays question. After having looked at several profiles and seen that several of the men musicians are married and more of the women musicians are not, I had to ask myself a question. Are there more women who are willing to be married to a musician than the opposite? I'd really like to hear folks' thoughts on this. Ava

Transcension



(inspired by the first line, which was written by Gian Dodge)

The Shaman's in the Amazon,

the Dali Lama's in the Bahamas.

One monk is in the monkey house

the other in the mountains.

Got gurus in the garage,

Mahatma’s got his ma-hat-on.

The Maharishi’s in the sushi,

Yogi's eating yogurt in the Yucatan.

Krishna’s in the kitchen

and…

Boots Don’t Make You Bootsy

Vibe-rant yellow boots and silver leaf bag suits,

impenetrable vinyl so the chemicals aren't liable

to leak into you or ruin your processed do.

Change up the groove from double time, blood,

"Breakwater" appears to be ready for a flood.

At first I wondered why you were in a shower room,

now I get the point that your gear is waterproof,

Tell me do you merely clean up crime scenes,

or slosh through sewers, drains,… Continue

Which Candidate for President Will Do More For Jazz?

Now we know that Bill Clinton plays sax, but does Hillary like jazz?

I heard that Ann Marie Wilkins is working for the Obama campaign. Since she manages Harry Connick and Branford and runs Marsalis Music, does this mean Obama is good for jazz?

Please send me your comments!

I'm curious if anyone knows!

OL'SCHOOL/NEW SCHOOL; CHANGIN' TIMES

Hey Guys: Thanks for all the wonderful feedback about my new "Groovin' U" CD. I really appreciate it. Your comments of "Album of the year..," "Smooth and exciting," to simply "WOWWW!" really makes my day.



For those of you familiar with by work with Brass Construction, BT Express and Skyy, Raphael Cameron, et. al, I know this album is quite a departure from my usual funk/soul/R&B dance fare. However, I believe as an artist, writer and producer, one has to constantly allow for… Continue

Melancholy





She is the densest darkness of the woods;

impenetrable until daylight, and even then,

pit-falled and precarious.



You think you can avoid her if you wait until morning,

but she’s a vapor that creeps though the cracks of any room

like Radon - undetectable by canary or aqueduct trout.



I glance up from my book and she’s appeared.

Her head tilted like a Jikata listening

for the strains of a song.



Teeth slightly… 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."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
