A concept born out of a personal journey… 



Here is a very short sample of my old e-mail signatures, and there were many(!!!)...


Arkady -- "The Godfather of JewJazz",

The Arkady Arkestra -- "The Other Side of Jewish Music, and more...!!!"

Arkady "The Other Side"


"JewJazz! The funkiest damn Jewish music on Earth!"

-- Miles Davis



We don't determine music,

The music determines us;

We only follow it

To the end of our life:

Then it goes on without us.


It begs to be born and,

Wants to go its own way,

We just make it up and,

Then we let it out.


Music speaks for itself,

And needs no explanation

Or justification:

Either it is alive, or it is not.

"Never trouble 'til trouble troubles you."

-- from Steve Lacy's web site


"Silence is part of music."

-- Brahms

"Learn all rules of music, and then forget them!"

-- Haydn told Mozart


"For the Heights and Depths no man can reach, MUSIC is the only speech..."

-- one of Arkady's all time favorite quotes


"Capitalists will sell us a rope on which we'll hang them!"

-- Vladimir Illych Lenin*

*What would he have said if bungee cords were around back then?

-- Arkady


"Music stupefies persons listening to it, and makes their brains inactive and frivolous!"

-- Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini


"Being a Mac user is like being a Navy SEAL: a small, elite group of people with access to the most sophisticated technology in the world, who everyone calls on to get the really tough jobs done quickly and efficiently."

-- author unknown



Created using a Mac, with pride!!!
