Long time no see. This is Keith Hall from Helsinki in Finland We worked together at the Pori jazz festival some years ago (You , Ron McClure and myself). Nice to know that you are well and keeping busy. I love your site and your music. I have, also, done quite a bit since we last met, you can check my page from this site if you get a spare moment. Take care and all the best.
Hi Mike, I want to send you my new CD, "Circle Completing" with John diMartino.....send me an email with your address to email@example.com. I haven't seen you in the neighborhood, give Jorge and I a call, we should hang out when you've got a free night. We're opening the Main Street Music Mission on Sept. 30, a party and jam, I hope you and Dotty can make it......Also, want you to be a part of the performances we'll be scheduling.
Thanx Mike. I played a couple tunes with you some years back at the NARAS jazz jam at Birdland. Believe I had the soprano. If you'll send me your email address, I'll get a lead sheet to you. I've been trying to get songs into Hilary's repertoire, but so far no luck. Ross firstname.lastname@example.org
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."
