Dear Friends:

The Jazz Community is a rare and beautiful thing.  It's a real family of like-minded souls, united in the their love and reverence for this music. I love to say that I've been all over the world and seen Jazz People everywhere.  It always gives me the hope that true world peace can be possible through the wordless communion of music - jazz the international language, that all with ears can understand!

When I was a kid I took a few piano lessons from Mike LeDonne and he left a big impression on me - his seriousness and true excitement for this music - enthusiasm!  I was inspired.  Now I am proud to call him my friend and colleague.  For the last few years Mike has organized a jazz concert that any jazz festival would be proud to present anywhere in the world.  He literally got the best in the business to come together for a great cause - the rights of the disabled.  Mike's daughter Mary suffers from a disability and Mike has made it his mission to bring awareness and dignity to people like his daughter.  He created a non-for-profit called Disability Pride NYC and began hosting an all-star lineup of jazz dignitaries for a gala concert event.  This year includes Wynton Marsalis, George Coleman, Kenny Barron, Roy Hargrove, Al Foster and many others.  All the proceeds go directly to The Annual Disability Pride Parade.  Well worth taking a look at his site and the concert lineup and supporting this cause.

I hope everyone has a pleasant and productive week.  Life is a precious gift and we should cherish our memories like precious stones!  Guard them - every moment.

Regards,

Spike
