were simply awesome! Come back soon.

You probably don't remember, but we used to correspond about twenty years ago. I've been wondering what you've been up to the last ten years or so since I haven't seen any records with your name on it recently.

Hi Steve. I took your seminar class at National Gtr. Summer Workshop about 3 years ago. Anyway, it's raining out and I was getting on myself for not practicing enough, (my band's doing well, but that's just easy cover stuff). Anyway, I pulled out the green 3-ring binder you gave us from the course and started working with it again. As expected, it gave me a lot of inspiration. Then I started wondering if you had a website, and sure enough, I typed in stevekhan.com and there it was. Anyway, three years later I still appreciate the few days I got to spend under your tutelage. Thanks, Guy

I walked to a Newsstand in my hood the other night and heard this music playing and I just stopped and listened. I never bought a thing, I just kept asking, "Who is this playing?" I was told and shown the CD case
now I sit at work and listen to your album "YOU ARE HERE" which is the BOMB!!

Yo Steve! Luv the new and improved discography! You and Blaine Fallis have outdone yourselves! Hope you make it to Los Angeles for a gig sometime.
BTW, One of my goals is to someday find a CD copy of "BLADES"-"MODERN TIMES"!
All the best,
Los Angeles, CA USA - Monday, May 03, 1999 at 14:12:39 (EDT)
Groovy website, Steve -- It's really improved over the last few months, and that's sayin' something! As I await the next release, "YOU ARE HERE" remains in heavy rotation.

Yo whassssup Guiro-man?! Hey Steve, just sending out some positive vibes your way. I want to thank you here, on your own site, for your generous spirit, selfless musicianship, and your humility my brother. It continues to be a refreshing thing for me when I meet someone of your stature in the music business, who is just down to earth, dig? And you are, so 'down'. Thank you for that. And I want to thank you again for the Mounsey connection. He is another one, like you, just cool. Hey, you're just cool Etí! Tu y yo mi hermano, dos gringos que tenemos la cosa para la musica Latina. :) ¡Palante! Mucho afecto como siempre, Jillian "ZILLA"
New York, NY USA - Tuesday, April 27, 1999 at 20:22:43 (EDT)
Nice web site; muy chevere, chico. Took you long enough... Thanks for all the great music, inspiration, and continued success. Go easy on the tostones & lechon frito, though...
Los Angeles, CA USA - Tuesday, April 27, 1999 at 18:44:22 (EDT)
Hi Steve. I'm here with Christine and Marc admiring your webpage. It looks really great. Everything is here, except for those things Christine is keeping for the book.
E. Hampton, NY USA - Tuesday, April 20, 1999 at 17:21:41 (EDT)
Know you mainly through "CASA LOCO" & "BLADES" from your Eyewitness group, and man, those records give me a feeling of inspiration. Manolo Badrena and Mr. Steve Jordan rock. Thanks for the most excellent music.
Ashland, OR USA - Wednesday, April 14, 1999 at 22:16:32 (EDT)
Hi-Ho Steverino.....just checked in on your site again. You and Blaine have done a great job.
EVERYTHING you ever wanted to know about Steve Khan is HERE!! Although I can say
that I still have some unpublished stories that I'm keeping for the book!!!! STAY TUNED....

E. Hampton, NY USA - Thursday, April 08, 1999 at 10:09:21 (EDT)
What can I say? You have a great sound, a sound of YOUR OWN and the more albums you do, the better they are.
And I think you still haven't had the recognition you deserve as the most original guitar player all around.

New York, NY USA - Tuesday, March 30, 1999 at 22:39:33 (EST)
"YOU ARE HERE" is as jazzy-mellow as they come.
Visalia, CA USA - Saturday, March 27, 1999 at 20:36:47 (EST)
Steve: Gregg Ivers turned me on to your great music years ago, and more recently, to your Web site - it's definitely "sticky" as they say in Web parlance! I particularly enjoyed browsing over your musical recommendations, and I share your fondness for many of them. Would love to see you perform live, and would make the trek to D.C. if you make it there before Atlanta! Best wishes, Steve.
Atlanta, GA USA - Wednesday, March 24, 1999 at 13:29:48 (EST)
Steve, I love the site; although I'll have to get back to you about the shaving advice (so far, so good). Thanks for the help in getting some of your harder to find titles. I've been a big fan since your trio of albums on Columbia back in the '70s; and I must say, you've put out nothing but consistently fine stuff since then, as well. Be sure to keep us fans updated on any live gigs and upcoming tour dates!
Palm Springs, CA USA - Tuesday, March 02, 1999 at 13:44:52 (EST)
Steve: GREAT, GREAT site!!! Thanks for all the time you've taken over these past several months to
communicate with me about your music, sports, etc. Still looking for "MODERN TIMES"/"BLADES" . . . perhaps
one day? Let's hope that 1999 continues to inspire your limitless creativity and musical genius . . . and, allows
you the chance to perform live in the Washington, DC area. Best, Gregg Ivers

NEW ALBUMS CAN'T COME FREQUENTLY ENOUGH FROM YOUR DIRECTION, EVERYBODY SHOULD OWN AT LEAST ONE STEVE KHAN ALBUM!! - LIKE THE WEBSITE BY THE WAY, LET'S SEE YOU IN THE U.K. SOON.

Birmingham, U.K. - Thursday, February 11, 1999 at 13:57:12 (EST)
Yo Dad, the Sixers are going to have a better record than the Knicks this year. You heard it here first. Anyway, your website rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Los Angeles, CA USA - Wednesday, February 10, 1999 at 16:05:33 (EST)
I've been a fan since the late 70's. I sure would love to replace my worn out vinyl collection with some CD's. Any chance of finding the older stuff on CDs?
Orlando, FL USA - Thursday, February 04, 1999 at 10:53:56 (EST)
Je recherche l'album "EYEWITNESS" et "EVIDENCE", merci
pour toute informations concernant ces 2 albums.
Le Bourget, 93 France - Tuesday, February 02, 1999 at 09:54:27 (EST)
Steve, we really dig your music and revere your dad's compositions. Saw you at the New Morning in Paris about 6 years ago. Really happy to know that you and Mounsey did it again. How 'bout coming to France? Keep swinging! Mr B.
Paris, France - Sunday, January 24, 1999 at 04:57:09 (EST)
Time sure flies. I am already for some 25 years a big fan of yours. It's good to know
that you also like the art of J.M. Folon.
Netherlands - Saturday, January 23, 1999 at 10:14:35 (EST)
I bought your book of Wes Montgomery Transcriptions and I have been having a lot of fun learning his music. You are also a great influence on me. When I found out you took lessons with Ron Anthony, I went ahead and found him to still be teaching and performing. Now I found a great guitar teacher because you mentioned him as your guitar teacher at one time. Thanks for your great music and your influence.

Hey Steve! Studied privately with you a few years back, when I was at
the New School. The site looks great! Keep up the good work.

New York, NY USA - Thursday, January 21, 1999 at 13:17:43 (EST)
Steve! What a great site. I've been digging your scene since CBS All-Stars. I don't have time today to check it all out, but I will be back soon.
Fort Worth, TX USA - Tuesday, January 19, 1999 at 17:13:31 (EST)
Hello Steve! I've admired your work for years as a leader and session musician. As Music Editor of Urban Network, I recently reviewed your latest album with Rob Mounsey (SIAM has it) and I must say that it has been my aural sanctuary ever since - just like Pat Metheny & Charlie Haden's "MISSOURI SKYLINE"(Short Stories) was for me two years ago. My favorite songs are #3 and #4 (I think the first one is spelled "Platanos Maduros" or somethin'...the other one is easy, "Still Life With Mockingbird"). The CD is in my bedside CD alarm clock RIGHT NOW, so that's what I wake up to every morning...ever so gently. Years ago, I was real excited that your band Eyewitness was scheduled to play in nearby Venice, but the gig was cancelled. Sadly, I never got to see that band (as a drummer, I was dying to see Steve Jordan in that context). But thanks for the positive vibrations on the new discs ("GOT MY MENTAL" is cool too)! Peace.

Excellent Website. The Folon link was a great idea. I've been listening to your music since Tightrope first came out,
now all of your CDs are in my collection. "YOU ARE HERE" is another fine addition. The only time I've seen you in concert was at the Century Theater in Buffalo on November 19, 1977 with the CBS All-Stars. That was one hell of a line-up. I still have the ticket stub! Two suggestions for your recommended list, Robert Fripp and Zachary Breaux. Great guitarists with a unique style.
Niagara Falls, NY USA - Friday, January 08, 1999 at 18:05:15 (EST)
Not many people know that Professor Khan also plays a mean
guiro (hence the honorific "Guiro-Boy") but also whips up a
hellacious shrimp etoufée... See you around the neighborhood,
pal... (P.S. "YOU ARE HERE" is great, but that Mounsey guy, jeez,
I don't know.) -- R.
New York, NY USA - Friday, January 01, 1999 at 22:52:33 (EST)
Do you remember me? I took your class at the National Guitar Summer Workshop years ago (10 years ago?). You wrote me a wonderful recommendation to Berklee College of Music and sent me a few of your records. Anyway, I haven't played the guitar much for a number of years. But tonight, I picked it up and started playing one of your melodies that I learned off of one of your records that you sent me and thought, "I wonder, does Steve have a website?" Sure enough, you do. And it looks good. I would really love to hear from you. And if you ever come to NYC please tell me because I'd love to come hear you play. Wishing you well.
New York, NY USA - Monday, December 28, 1998 at 22:53:44 (EST)
Really dig the new CD 'YOU ARE HERE' w/ Rob Mounsey. This is one KILLER CD! Of course, every CD you make comes straight from the heart, and that honesty and integrity always shines in all of your work. Hope you take it on the road in '99!
Los Angeles, CA USA - Saturday, December 26, 1998 at 11:37:25 (EST)
Of the 200 CD's in my collection, the one I play the most is your "LET'S CALL THIS." Something new each time played.
Albuquerque, NM USA - Tuesday, December 22, 1998 at 16:19:39 (EST)
I am digging the music--all of it. What a fine player! And to those who haven't checked out YOU ARE HERE yet, I highly recommend it.
Exeter, CA USA - Tuesday, December 22, 1998 at 11:27:31 (EST)
Great site! You've got it all here - sheet music, info, Steve's favorite bagels, etc.! Keep up the quality work - my new favorite.

Cool site....thanks for the recommendations..
San Francisco, CA USA - Friday, December 11, 1998 at 12:45:02 (EST)
Hello Steve! I found your new work with Rob Mounsey at TOWER RECORDS in Tokyo.
So YOU ARE HERE now. It's very peaceful. I love it! My idea on your next project:
What about playing with Peter Erskine, John Patitucci, and Alex Acuña?
Tokyo, Japan - Saturday, December 05, 1998 at 11:18:33 (EST)
Hey Man!!! Great site! Really excellent ... terrific job, Steve and Blaine. All best wishes!

Santa Monica, CA USA - Tuesday, November 24, 1998 at 09:15:07 (EST)
Hi Steve! I just bought the "YOU ARE HERE" album and I love it! I have always thought of the "LOCAL COLOR" as one of my favorites, so I was excited to see the release of your new album with Rob. I also am a big fan of your Eyewitness albums. Keep up the good work and thanks for the years of enjoyment your playing has brought to us!
Gilbert, AZ USA - Tuesday, November 17, 1998 at 22:05:55 (EST)
I literally got to the site by typing in "SteveKhan". What a great site! I have been a fan of the music for years. The internet has been great to music lovers...I will come back often, thanks for putting it out there! and the links to Folon, etc! Wow...
Columbia, SC USA - Sunday, November 08, 1998 at 20:52:17 (EST)
It's great to have an official Steve Khan web site! Excellent job!! I've been persuing your latest releases ever since hearing "Casa Loco" on WBGO at 4 A.M. on a hot summer's night around 15 years ago! Thanks for the music and a place to keep informed about your latest. Can't wait to hear the latest with the top monkey.
Seattle, WA USA - Saturday, October 31, 1998 at 20:27:17 (EST)
Aloha from Hawaii. I and my brother Nick are longtime
("TIGHTROPE") fans of yours. I wish you would put together the old group (Brecker, Lee, Gadd, MacDonald) and do another blazing fusion album. Just dreaming. Keep it up!
Mililani, HI USA - Friday, October 30, 1998 at 22:55:50 (EST)
