January 13th, 2009 – Danny Barker Centennial

What does 100 years of one man's life and legacy mean? America and it's music has already witnessed the centennials of three significant “Immortals.” Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, and Count Basie all arrived on Earth within a span of five years, just at the dawning of a new mass produced century. Their music, respectively and collectively has changed the world. Forever will their lives be represented in their work and words – their sounds and images and thoughts resonating for generations of… Continue

January 6th, 2009 – Twelfth Night

“If music be the food of love, play on;

Give me excess of it, that, surfeiting,

The appetite may sicken, and so die.”

- William Shakespeare



“The Green Room is smokin' and The Plaza's burnin' down;

Throw the baby out the window,

Let those joints burn down...

All because it's Carnival time!”

- Al “Carnival Time” Johnson

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!
