Hey JT, good to see you again, although the circumstances were sorrowful. It was at the Hank Grate Sr. Memorial Jam in the old neighborhood. I will be posting some photos from the event in THE JAZZ NETWORK'S gallery.
Ahhhh....."Resting on the Road".....very beautiful...I get the visual of a musician on the road, far from home, layin' on the bed with the curtains of his hotel room open, looking out onto the countryside and wondering about his family....how music takes us all over the world and sometimes we are the only one who experiences all the different cultures...all by ourselves...beautiful backdrop to life on the road J.T. I am going to promote the song on my page if you don't mind....
Thanks for the visual of thought and heart musically,
OOOO diggin' the new tune....hey I meant to ask you "do you think you've played with enough people in the business?" lol....man oh man...you are world renowned...I'm glad you decided to share your wealth with us all musically.

Top of the Morning to you JT "Track 09" is smoothly 'tickling my Sunday" setting me on the Path to the Call of Worship...Enjoy a Great Coming Week! I don't speak Portugese...Listening, I reflect to myself, questionably asking myself, who needs Linguistics? "Track 11" answer's my inner question...Oh so Righty Right...
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."
