Fascinating! Naresh Fernandes has published his new book, "Taj Mahal Foxtrot", which traces the advent of jazz in Goa (!) during the 30s to our own time. A little known corner of jazz history, it documents the contributions of American expatriate and Indian musicians, and many more in the 20s and 30s into the 40s and beyond.
The book is entitled and subtitled 'Taj Mahal Foxtrot, the story of Bombay's jazz age'. Yes, that's the same Taj hotel that was attacked in recent…Continue

I hope you

Pl check out my movie on SOBO, South Bombay.
I have just started digital photography, and thank god for the fact that PCs and fancy cameras have made the task a lot easier. Although, I have many albums up on Flickr, I would like you to visit and comment on this one. It's ironical that the more things change, the more they remain the same.
When I have time on a…Continue

So, I've been living in Amman Jordan for a year now, and have come to realize that this city desperately needs some colour. I did a few murals throughout the city, and decided to start an organization to develop mural art in this city. Check out the website, www.ammanincolour.com, and like us on facebook too!

The folks at the Pecha-Kucha home (Tokyo) site were so kind in posting my presention on their web page. The folks in Cleveland who do all the arranging for our local events had no current funding or at present to record any of the presenters. I took the initiative in writing the originators of all to see if there was any interest in my video…Continue

I believe passionately in the positive impact that art has on physical and particularly on mental health and well-being.
I am also a disabled artist and would love to share thoughts on disability and it's impact on your art. Has it "enhanced" your style?
I've come to believe that it has a unique influence on mine.

Seems these days being an Artist can be a tough way to make a living. At fifty my mid-section's a little thick than when I was in my 20's but I can relate otherwise as probably many who read this to the terms often heard of "Starving Artist." I can honestly say that I would be lost not being able to create and work with my mind as well as hands as is so gratifying and keeps me at peace with…Continue

I've been despicably quiet.
With the results of the general election here, the country gently drifted from a state of general apathy but acceptance towards cultural activity, into a risk-aversive mindset. This (more than any cut) has made my working here difficult; places that would normally have relished totally improvised music are more constrained and choosing safer options.
But around the world there seems to be signs of resurgence, a battle so to speak, against…Continue

I just spent a couple of weeks ago visiting my In-law's in ft. Myers, Florida. They retired there a little over a year ago permanently and are enjoying life. Being from Cleveland we'll get the usual conversations over the phone with keeping up with them being told that it's in the 80's and us having to…Continue
