Hello everyone,

I am overjoyed to find this very special place for Jazz. And I am happy to be here now. Everyday I am learning the endless possibilities of technology, particularly the internet. Now we can share music, news, thoughts,etc. instantly and globally. As creators of this music called Jazz, the internet has brought about a new creative and commercial freedom never shared, or even imagined by our early Jazz family. Who knew that technology would be the bridge, the path to conceiving and controlling our creative offerings, at a pace, in a form that all Artists should naturally decide; not "manufactured" for a corporate time quarter, trend, or quota. The songs must be free to be, to be born to be free, to soar.
I am too happy to be a witness to this new freedom, and to have the opportunity to learn and implement needed change for Jazz to grow.

For now, I'll slowly build my Jazz page into a friendly place. I'm new here, and I'm already enjoying what I'm hearing, seeing and reading. Lee Morgan taught me the importance of slow building; we were in the studio working on my first album, "FLUTE-IN". I remember his words as I recorded his hit,"THE SIDEWINDER" He said,Build slowly, like a conversation. Don't rush your words, or notes!"

So, after I come back from my run,( Just started back!) I'm calling my webmaster to get some very special photos on, and some of my music up too. Please visit my official site at www.bobbihumphrey.net, and myspace.com.

P.S. Try to come to my gig on Friday and Saturday, July 11-12,'08 in Mount Vernon, New York. My friend, Jazzman Duke Jones has started a new club for Jazz called "THE BASS LINE".And I'll be there with my band to help him launch it. So, come by. It's located at 130 east First st. See you there, and talk with you later. All the best! Bobbi

Bobbi,

It means a lot to me/us here in the Jazz Network that you bring your wellspring of heart to us. Your words, the way you sew them up shows us a beautiful fabric that has been shared and loved by many who got/get the opportunity to listen. You are a veteran; a seasoned etching on the canvas of jazz. Thank you for your kind words, for when I hear and read these types of blogs from the likes of your caliber of heart and music, I am touched....The Jazz Network takes flight...even higher.

Looking very much forward to hearing your music and featuring your talent.

God bless YOU!
Jaijai

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!
