Hello Larry !
Thanks For Coming Through, I Love Your Pocket Playing Over Here ! I'm Boosting Myself Up Again To Get Back Out There Playing, Sometimes The Local Music Scene Can Kill One's Drive With The Clickish Things They Do If They Don't Know You. But I'm Learning Something New Everyday ! I Hope To do Work With You Someday In The Future Godwilling .
Welcome & Stop By Anytime My Brother ! .....*TiZ*

Wow Larry... you're right: it has been a long time. Fill me in man: did we ever work together when in NYC back in the 70s? In the meantime, I'm trying to configure my page here on the network. It's fun!

Hi Larry,

I love your music and I see you have gigged with some of the best. Carmen McRae........she for me had the absolute best phrasing ever. And Roberta Flack.....growing up, she was my # 1 musical inspiration....

Best wishes and thank you for the music....

Hi Larry,
It's so great for you to chime in on the forum, because except for you and a few others, I was wondering why certain people were not getting it. Mentioning the jazz language was going right over people's heads. Thank for your breath of fresh air. It will be fun to play with you one day!

Safe travels,

Hello Larry,
Thanks for your friendship.
Please keep in touch.

















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!

A new album by the octogenarian saxophonist is always a big deal, but his latest — and the winner of the 2018 Jazz Critics Poll — is also just plain big: 3 discs and an 84-page graphic novel.

The 2018 NPR Music Jazz Critics Poll

Over 130 critics voted on the best jazz albums of 2018 — celebrated elders dominated the top of the results, but a class of younger musicians is rising.
