Nice to meet you. You sound great. I'll in NZ sometime this year to do some recording and filming some more ads. Is Rodger Fox still around? I noticed his website has been down for some months. Hope your working somewhere when I come down under. Care... V...
Dear Barb...thanks for dropping by.
p.s. you swing my dear!
Glad to have you back among the singing :)
Keep up the good works.
Perhaps we'll have the opportunity to work together sometime.
...in jazz we trust
That's exciting, Barb! Will Alan be accompanying you? You are definitely in synch on The Trolley Song! When you're ready let's talk about getting you on the radio in the US (not just on my shows but across the continent as I earn my living doing jazz radio promotions and most of my clients produce and release their own CDs).
Hello Barb! Thanks for your kind comments about my playing! And yup, 'Everything Must Change' is one of my faves too, so glad you like our rendition. I just listened to your wonderful singing and you are simply GREAT! No other way to put it. And the musicians with you are right with ya and amazing players. You seem to sing so effortlessly and with such great phrasing. I could listen to y'all ANY ol' day - for hours. I've always wanted to go to New Zealand, so going to hear you in a jazz club one day would be a heckuva good reason to do JUST that. You're simply marvellous and I wish you were here or I was there so we could work together. Keep on doing what you do, 'BJ'. You should be famous - and I betcha one day you will be well-known everywhere.

Do either of you have a current CD? I'd be happy to play anything you send on my radio programs. Please check out my site for my mailing address. Thanks & music always, Mitchell - (www.JazzRadioPromotionAndPublicity.com)
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."
