Hello Steve, Your music has been in my ears for so many years! I just came upon your website after looking up info about Steve Swallow. It was a great surprise to read your page about the trio with Scofield. I was delighted to read about Westbeth, as I had been taking lessons from Jeff Andrews at Westbeth right up until his death. Cool to have more history attached to that building. Hope you are well, and thanks for this wealth of information. Sincerely, Wyeth

Steve, Sorry to bother again. I just wanted to mention the incredible "The Journey Home" track from "PATCHWORK." As I've been listening to the album over the last few weeks, this track keeps coming back to me. What a great arrangement, great playing. And to take such a great song (but somewhat forgotten) from Keith Jarrett's wonderful "MY SONG" album, both a great and very challenging idea. Stay well and safe, Darrell

Hello, Steve - First, thank you for the decades of music and for helping to open my mind to jazz 30 years ago. We had your "PUBLIC ACCESS" CD in my college radio station's library, and I used to play tracks from it on my weekly show. P.S. Love the website. I have a bunch of new (old) music to listen to now. - Chris

Hi Steve, I just ran across your interview with David Schroeder(NYU) and wanted to thank you for that, and tell you I really enjoyed it. I have been a fan for many years and appreciate your books and this site as well. Did you record any sessions for Hanna-Barbera cartoons? Strange question, but I seem to remember a "GUITAR PLAYER" article about that - and was always curious, or if I was confused or dreaming?

Hi Steve. The other day I listened to the interview that you gave to Leo Sidran in December, 2014 as part of his "The Third Story" podcast. I very much enjoyed what you said about "feeling mediocre at times" and how important it is to "focus on the things that we are good at." These comments and many other of your statements resonated with me. Thanks for this, I will share some parts of your statements with my students (engineering students, though).
    Back in 2001, you were kind enough to send me a copy of the Thelonious Monk Tribute album for which you contributed a duet with Donald Fagen of Monk's "Reflections." Best regards, Klaus

Steve, Recently purchased your latest "PATCHWORK." It is incredible! Should have purchased it sooner. I love your interpretation of "Epistrophy." That tune seems to have taken on some new life with recent recordings including yours and Bill Frisell's. Happy New Year! Darrell

Fan since I was 16. I'm 59 today. Listening to Thelonious Monk, and I just recognized a song he was playing that you had recorded. Hope you are doing well. You provided so much music to my life experience. I play one of your records, and remember where I was, and what I was doing. The best thing about cool jazz music is the memories it brings back. Thanks for reading this and thanks for playing and sharing.
