Hello fellow Jazz Lovers,

I am a new member of this site, however I feel a connection with each and all of you in our mutual appreciation of this wonderful music genre.

As I am no scholar, I am not one who can write an exceptional dissertation about this music.

What I am though, is a video director, who has taken his love for live performance of all types and given focus to this unique thing described as Jazz.

My company produces documentaries and video projection for live events, as well as live concert webcasts.

In February of this year, my wife and I moved to Seattle and stumbled onto Jazz Alley. Our first webcast from this venue was with Mindi Abair, who turned out to be one of the most humble, laid back artist I have worked. Needless to say it was a great night and a great performance and later Mindi even posted about us on her website.

Well we were hooked and have been doing as many shows as will allow us access, to bring these live performances to the world for free!

The goal of our website and our webcasts, is to draw viewers in to see and hear this amazing music and to promote musical education and humanitarian efforts on a global level.

Music is the language that knows no barriers, like Jazz itself.

We hope all of you will take time to enjoy live music as an art form, many wonderful musicians have recorded in the studio and given the world many songs which we can listen to over the years. However it is my humble opinion that the best way to engage in this art form is to watch it performed live in person. At TourTV it is our hope that we can share captured moments in time as if you were sitting right there with the artist watching them live.

But please if you can, go to a jazz club, go to a school performance, and always support your local musician by watching them in person when they do chose to play live and help them out by buying a CD. So much great music is lost to the world because a musician could not afford to get to the next gig.

PLEASE Support Live Music in any way you can.

William 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!
