Hey Bill,

Billy Cobham, my man I have dug your playing since the very first time I heard you play way back in the early 70's. Hope to get that chance one day to meet you. I almost did at a music convention show in Chicago back in the 70's you were the featured drummer I think it was for Zildjian, however I couldn't get to you! Well my friend that care and keep kickin!!!

Hello Billy, you have always been one of my favorite musicians. I met you in the '80's in NYC, probably through my brother Wilby Fletcher, Jr...he's a drummer too. Your sound has always been original, distinct & tasteful. Just so you know, I'd love to create some cover art for you. It would be an honor & a pleasure for me.

Hi Billy we met in Geneva at least 10 years ago when I was playing with Bernard Allison while living in Paris, and you had Brian Bromberg playing bass. I'm a Jazz Network friend of your mom, and friend of Victor Bailey. I'm the guy who takes care of his protools. If you have some issues with your Mac please contact me. Vic has all my info and can vouch for me. I've been a great fan of you yours for all my musical life. I hope to have a great collaboration with you. Jay Golden

Going to listen to Miles Davis tribute to Jack Johnson on vinyl in head phones right after I type this. Sounds like a perfect evening to me.

















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!
