Trish Clowes sets the bar very high at the London Jazz Festival 2010

The London Jazz Festival 2010 began its musical journey through the Capital in a manner akin to an Olympic games opening festivities. Think Beijing, in the form of opening act, Trish Clowes.

She & her sextet masterfully introduced her debut album, "Tangent", in the Clore Ballroom, Southbank Centre to a packed foyer that for an hour, housed a hugely appreciative and captive audience that seemed to cling to her every note.

The diminutive & petite figure of Trish approaching the stage completely belied the controlled, hauntingly serene opening notes of, "Pelude to a sketch", the opening track of the album. Indeed, for me it revealed the first glimpse of an accomplished musician.

Throughout her Short set Trish painted pictures, wove tapestries and told stories in her own notes. Her interpretation of poem & novel that bore significance to her, exposed a precocious talent adept at the art of composing, (yes, the music on the album was composed by her), that will certainly sustain the creation of excellent music for years to come.

Trish and the gifted group of young musicians that supported her, seamlessly took the music, (and the audience), to different levels, weaving their way effortlessly through each piece.

They closed the show with the marquee piece, "Sketch", which was executed to perfection, minus the orchestral component charactrerised in the album version.

A totally enjoyable experience that made braving the poor weather to witness brilliance, all the more worthwhile.

The future of UK Jazz is in good hands!!

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!
