Re: Swaziland South Africa Documentary
Issue: Full length video divided into 3 sections
From July 15th through July 24th I spent time in South Africa, in particular The Kingdom Of Swaziland. My mission was to perform a series of shows at night and work during the day with a group called Heart For Africa. With that said, I believe it would be more effective for you to watch the video documentary, than for me to put into words (blog) about this incredible experience!

I wanted to personally blog and tell you about a concert I will be involved with on April 26th, 2010 in Atlanta, GA. I will be part of the “house band“performing with Earl Klugh, Boney James and Mindi Abair. This is a special 1 night event to raise awareness/money for ALS research and jazz personality Deborah Lewow who was recently diagnosed with this horrible disease. Deborah was instrumental in helping Earl, Boney and Mindi’s career.
Please join us with an evening of great music! All proceeds from the concert will go to ALS research/Deborah Lewow. GET YOUR TICKETS HERE.

Years ago I scribbled several quotes that really effected my outlook on music, creativity and life. Recently, I found this paper of quotes in a shoebox of memories. While I do not know the author, I thought it was worth blogging/posting and sharing this:
"Be brave enough to live creatively. The creative is the place where no one else has ever been. You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. You cannot get there by bus, only by hard work, risking and not quite knowing what you are doing. What you will discover will be wonderful - yourself."- author unknown

It has been a while since I’ve made a personal blog post, as I’ve been extremely busy with many exciting projects. We hope to announce these in the coming months so stay tuned.
In the meantime, I wanted to post an issue that is very important to me. In this current state of economic/political discourse and with many changes in the air, I believe it is important to address a movement/opportunity/position that could benefit all of us. This job is a “Secretary Of The Arts” Government cabinet position. The idea of this position is to build awareness and support creative artists, through support of its creators – the artists themselves. With this cabinet post, it will demonstrate the fundamental importance of art, human well being and create the space and resources in which it can flourish. With your help, we can make this a reality.
Quincy Jones and Jaime Austria initiated the idea and it has been spreading among artists/blogs throughout the world wide web. I would encourage each of you to: SIGN THE PETITION
Thank you for your consideration.
