    Peace and Love

    Peace LibertyLady,

    Thanks for sharing.

    Tell me something you know, about the current Jazz scene in Holland.
    And I mean the "real" Jazz scene.


    Peace,

    Brother Sun Ship :)

    Hey liberty lady
    my daughter just got back from amsterdam...she is weighing the possibility of living there (love calls her0
    last time i was there (last year october/november) we went to urban myths...ate inthe cafe in building on the corner..
    I've seen a few things there and really like the art they display.
    \
    I've actually been to a few other places there and seen some plays and dance concerts...she is not here right now, i must get the name of area where we were..between the buses and the underground i can't be specific.
    still loving it though...my dear friends continually send me info..
    one thing i do remember and was amazed by...at the museum (starts with an S the national museum...not to far from the van gogh) I saw a piece that had been created by this workshop of young teens from what i would call innercity areas. Each one had a square and they looked at the painting of "the negro" and inside of there square using the color tones from the original they were to draw it as they felt it. and what came out was this grid that was20 times the size of the original...still looking like the man and yet as you looked in each grid square they had put messages, drawn a variety of pictures..it was awe inspiring. about 100 different energies connected as one and still with their own individuality.
    It was to large to travel...the museum was being renovated and was about to close , someone took me to the area they had been working so i could see it ...i am told it was going to be on display...Have you seen it..
    I will get the names to be more specific...
    love amsterdam...

    ...Sun, those Scandinavians and Germans are DEEP into jazz, and they're putting out some real nice stuff....I'm not heavily into "traditional" Jazz, but they're indeed innovators in the NuJazz (Jazz/Electronic fusion) genre.

    ....and speaking of North Sea Jazz, here's a website that has LOTS of concerts and interviews of some well-known, and lesser known artists:

    It's funny you should say that....

    I went to Belgium last year and was shocked to hear so much raw R&B playing in public places like the supermarket and in commercials.

    They don't even play it in the supermarkets and commercials here in America...not contemporary black music atleast.
    They love to play the "oldies".
