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!

Esquizito's Blog – April 2009 Archive (5)

April 28th, 2009

In “The City of Jazz,” one cannot turn around without encountering great legacy. Danny Barker speaks of the potency of Duke Ellington as if it was a force beyond the material world from which future generations will forever draw inspiration.

Regarding Art Tatum, Mr. Barker asks a simple question.



Question.wav



But then again... things are never so simple with Danny. Perhaps this is why he is so lovable. For the record, let me again reiterate: I never met Daniel Moses Barker. There are times when Danny... “blows my mind” - I mean, did a man like this exist?



Danny died in 1994, on the 13th of March, on the wings of Spring, in… Continue

Mr. Barker presents an intriguing question regarding Billie Holiday: “When did the girl sleep?”

While it would have been appropriate to post this study of Billie Holiday on last Tuesday – the 94th anniversary of her birth, I decided to wait a while. I figured that the first posting of “Jazz Appreciation Month 2009” was better served by the light-heartedness of Erroll Garner. Perhaps this… Continue

Spring has come!



On a related note, The Smithsonian Institute has declared that April is “Jazz Appreciation Month.” Of course most have heard the phrase: “The Birthplace of Jazz” (the motto was coined as a promotional slogan for French Quarter tourism and realty, a few decades back.) Well Dear Reader, I say: Jazz is still being born here in New Orleans! While I still cannot present any numbers to you, I will say it again – New Orleans is within a sho'nuff Katrina Baby Boom!… Continue
