Thank you, George! I am so excited about the extended love and I, like Derryl have been  trying to figure out the short cut to share with some of my facebook family this wonderful venue. I think the best way maybe to send the message from my yahoo mail to my facebook timeline and then forward it to those whom I would like to invite. Do you agree?

First Wooden Clock by: BENJAMIN BANNEKER 

Using as a model a pocket watch he had borrowed from a merchant or traveler, Banneker carved wooden replicas of each piece and used the parts to make a clock that struck hourly. He completed the clock in 1753, at the age of 21. Due to its precision (it struck every hour, on the hour, and continued to do so nearly forty years) the clock brought fame to young Banneker. Thus he began a watch and clock repair business. The clock continued to work until his death. Read more....

George, thank you and thank GOD for blessing you with insight to create WDCJN!   The Network has been my connection to the greatest Jazz Legends alive today and Emerging Jazz Icons.  Many of whom I've met and collaborated with over the last 3 yrs after our introduction.  Its a Wonderful thing when Creativity collides with History, Experience and Cosmic Energy and that's exactly the vortex you've created with the WDCJN.  Keep letting your light Shine Brother,......... Keep letting it SHINE~~~Lou 

 

 
KEEPING PEOPLE CONNECTED AROUND THE WORLD. Telling it like it is !

I think the idea is now for blacks to write about the history of our music. It's time for that, because whites have been doing it all the time.

Put it this way: Jazz is a good barometer of freedom… In its beginnings, the United States of America spawned certain ideals of freedom and independence through which, eventually, jazz was evolved, and the music is so free that many people say it is the only unhampered, unhindered expression of complete freedom yet produced in this country.~~~Duke Ellington
