Cause it's all about you, right?.........

Calm down, of course this isn't "about me", silly...

.

it's a good thing, that Prince is thinking of others/ supporting a band, but why did he choose jazz music... that was what I was surprised about, in my comment above...

.

but yeah charity, supporting a good cause, who can be against that..

.

let's hope Prince will follow that road, and get a lot of "positive press" out of this, I guess that's the main reason why people are "doing charity" anyway, isn't it..... question

.

.

but, I don't like jazz at all.. NEWS is so terrible... it's an opinion, "it's time 4 jazz 2 die" like he wrote back then - whatever he meant by that, I guess he's changed his mind several times about that.......

.

the ONA Tour was jazzy a decade ago, and like I mentioned, NEWS, -- I hope it is ok to speak my opinion, I am not that crazy about that.

.

I have seen Prince live 19 times since '87, but the jazzy concerts like the 2 ONA concerts in Aalborg and Copenhagen, weren't my faves. SOTT, Lovesexy, Gold and O2 London were better --- Peace.... we can't agree on everything, right?..

.

I'm just speculating, but he probably decided to fund them or their program because he seems to understand the importance of music theory, and most jazz programs stress theory more than other programs. Not that blues, rock, funk, soul, gospel, & R&B are devoid of theory--certainly they are not--but jazz programs usually expose their students to a larger range/spectrum of theory and playing, which can be, of course, applied to all other forms. In fact, this notion of learning the full range of theory is the only reason why I think that most musicians should also have a class in classical--for the theory. But, again, I'm just speculating as to why he chose to donate his funds to a jazz program. But, funding a jazz program is a great way to help expose young people to the full range of “playing.” Yet, with all of that said, he could have just heard of their story and said, "Man, let me help those youngsters." The truth of the matter is that I’d like to give money to all of the homeless people I meet. Yet, some days I do and some days I don’t, and it varies each day as to why I do and why I don’t. I’m just happy dude is helping people. Now, he can help me by releasing official DVDs and CDs of this current tour, including the Dakota shows, ‘cause it’s bangin’!

There must be an unusually high percentage of females in this band. He's probably investing in his future band members. Kind of joking. Good on him.

Does that mean you'll be taking it down immediately?!? I sure hope so. disbelief
Prince did an interview with a woman at Record World. They talked about whatever, then he asked her: "Does your pubic hair go up to your navel?" At that moment, we thought maybe we shouldn't encourage him to do interviews.

Yay!
Also applaud his keeping it quiet. It shows it's really about wanting to help, and not about boosting his own image.

I'm surprised he announced this. Usually he's very mum on his charitable donations.
