WAYNE WESLEY JOHNSON

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!

Review: The Bad Plus, 'Never Stop II'

Each album by The Bad Plus can be understood as a planted flag, a marker of group identity. Hear the jazz trio's first record with new pianist Orrin Evans.

Songs We Love: Kat Edmonson, 'Old Fashioned Gal'

On the first single from Old Fashioned Gal, Edmonson pines for a respite from pop-up ads and notifications, for a phone "inextricably connected to a wall."

THE JAZZ NETWORK WORLDWIDE IS AN ORIGINAL ENTITY AND SOLE PROPRIETOR AND HAS NEVER PARTNERED OR AFFILIATED ITSELF WITH ANY OTHER JAZZ NETWORK THAT EXISTS THAT HAS A SIMILAR INTERFACE TO OUR ORIGINAL INTELLECTUAL PROPERTIES, LAYOUT, ADVERTISEMENTS AND GRAPHIC DESIGN.

Jazz Legacy Productions has been dedicated in producing great jazz recordings from up-and-coming musicians as well as icons. And their latest is no exception to the rule. The Cooker’s debut recording “Warriors” is hybrid of musicians that have and continue the “Hard-Bop” legacy. The group consists of Davis Weiss on trumpet and bandleader, George Cables-Piano, Billy Harper-Tenor Saxophone, Billy Hart-Drums, Cecil McBee-Bass, Eddie Henderson-Trumpet/Flugelhorn,and Craig Handy-Alto Saxophone/Flute.

The disc was a tribute to the late Freddy Hubbard and his legendary 1965 Blue Note Recording “The Night of the Cookers: Live at Club La Marchal.” These guys cover Hubbard’s Bop classic “The Core,” to George Cable’s “Suite Rita Suite, Part 2,” to Billy Harper’s “Capra Black.” Between all the members of this all-star septet, these musicians have played on well over 1,000 records. Also, these guys have backed and played with some of the greatest Bop musicians in recorded jazz. So, this disc is a reflection and their musical experiences and the foundation of where Bop is going.

David Weiss acts as both arranger, bandleader, and trumpeter; something he takes both seriously and with pride. Having been arranger and band leader for Freddy Hubbard, The Cookers “was like riding a bike” he adds.
