THE ESSENCE SHOW - May 31st, 2009 Episode 75


Host Kara Johnstad

"People usually consider walking on water or in thin air a miracle. But I think the real miracle is not to walk either on water or in thin air, but to walk on earth. Every day we are engaged in a miracle which we don't even recognize: a blue sky, white clouds, green leaves, the black curious eyes of a child, our own two eyes. All is a miracle-" Thich Nhat Hanh - Vietnamese Monk, Activist and… Continue

Yin and yang of jazz in Marcin Wasilewski's world

Introduced to the world by trumpet star Tomasz Stanko, Marcin Wasilewski’s piano trio is becoming hailed as a world-class unit in its own right. ECM record-buyers love their albums and believe fame would have come sooner had these Polish musicians not borne such difficult names for Western Europeans. To some British shoppers, Wasilewski, Slawomir Kurkiewicz (double-bass) and Michal Miskiewicz (drums) read like the bottom line of an optician’s… Continue

ELINGTON - Jazz and Poetry

Edward Kennedy "Duke" Ellington was the most prolific composer of the twentieth century in terms of both number of compositions and variety of forms. His development was one of the most spectacular in the history of music, underscored by more than fifty years of sustained achievement as an artist and an entertainer. He is considered by many to be America's greatest composer, bandleader, and recording artist. The extent of Ellington's innovations… Continue

Been Thinking About Practicing

A friend of mine recently took a lesson with a teacher who advised him to practice his piano performance of a song for a solid hour, blowing over the changes in time, without pausing to re-work a passage. This requires him to constantly seek and find new ways to improvise over the same changes. I've tried this and it invariably produces new and surprising results including more and more adventurous exploration of the tune in addition to a firmer familiarity with the changes. I also enjoy… Continue

“The more I get, the more I want – it seems.”

It seems so with my brief study of Jelly Roll Morton. As did Mr. Barker say previously: “I'll have to take a whole chapter on Jelly Roll.” Dear reader, while I have endeavored to roll deep with Jelly's journey – but for this month of May – I have been greatly distracted by my own issues of survival. Thus will I attempt to wrap up a few loose ends and hopefully make some constructive points which seem to loom in what Mr. Barker is holding… Continue

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!
