Thank you, Bill for stopping by my page. I love your music. Especially the blues in shar-truze and kinda kenny. I'm trying to put together a tribute to Oscar Brown, Jr with Kenny. He's now the director of ethnomusicolgy at UCLA
Great to meet and hear you. Wonderful music, what a virtuoso you are ! Your bio is fascinating, so many musical and personal accomplishments. Wishing you all the very best for 2009.
I checked out your page in the Jazz Network. Nice playing! When you get a moment please check out my free guitar lesson page at: http://www.bluesandjazzguitar.blogspot.com/ pass it on to friends, students and anyone who likes jazz guitar. I’m trying to promote jazz and blues guitar.

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."
