Hey Steve, Hope all is well, and you've been on my mind lately, so I grabbed the BGO Records "EYEWITNESS"/"MODERN TIMES"/"CASA LOCO" CD and really enjoyed it. I'm a happy guy. Be well,

Congratulations on "PATCHWORK," a tasty addition to the legacy and one of my favorites in your catalog. Hope you are safe and sound, and finding creative things to do, Folon collages included.

Happy Birthday Steve! and many more. You have been a source of phrasing inspiration that keeps me playing the drums. Been a fan for a while now ever since I found "THE BLUE MAN" and "EYEWITNESS" on vinyl while in high school. "LET'S CALL THIS" is still one of my go to albums for a rainy day. Also love your newer "PATCHWORK." Hope you can make it to Buffalo when this Covid19 blows over. The Tralf is still open!

I just have to tell you, every time I play a ballad and use my Wah, the sound I hear in my head, and have for many years, is your sound on "Darlin' Darlin' Baby." I know this harkens back many years, but to me, it's the best Wah sound I've ever heard, second only to Hendrix, of course. Those long notes still kill me every time. Atmospheric.
    While I'm here, I'd like to thank you for your very generous website and your Wes Montgomery transcriptions, which have given me much pleasure and food for thought over the years, and the wonderful music you have made. Anyway, thanks again, and I hope that you're all okay in New York. The news we get here is horrific. Be careful with that disinfectant... Seriously. Regards, Steve W

Hi Steve. Almost twenty years ago I bought your two books "PENTATONIC KHANCEPTS" & "CHORD KHANCEPTS." Many of the musical phrases contained in the books have changed my playing forever. Now after many years, I decided to go back to the wisdom contained in it, and was hearing the lines you played over the chord changes. Have you ever done transcriptions of those? Thank you

Dear Steve, I've listened carefully to "PATCHWORK," and I like it very much. Your recording is a gem for all the musicality it has, and especially the dream team you've put in the band. Dennis Chambers and Marc Quiñones sounded amazing. I loved the most the guest appearances of Randy Brecker and Bob Mintzer. My favorite songs were "Naan issue" (that sound of the melody is awesome!) and "The Journey Home." I hope you too are happy with your recording. I can't imagine how much planning and organizing it took. Abrazos desde Bolivia!

Steve, I really love your version of "Too Late Now" on "PATCHWORK." Been one of my faves since the Wes version. Your comping on "A Shade of Jade" is pure genius! Bravo!

Steve, Just listened to "PATCHWORK" and really thought it was great. I particularly liked what you did with "Epistrophy," "A Shade of Jade" and "Naan Issue." So many creative things happening melodically with the improvisation, and the tone is always awesome. Great album. Tom

Hi Steve, Hoping to just say hi and see how you're doing with all the virus craziness going on. I hope you're well. I just ordered a few CDs of yours from Amazon, and i've been finding your vinyl releases lately. Take care and respond when you can. Thanks! Scott

Dear Steve, You are probably sick to death of guitarists sending you emails to just say THANK YOU SO MUCH for all the great transcriptions you post for all to learn from. Subsequently, this note is perhaps just another nail in your coffin! Many, many thanks. Peace to you and yours. Todd

Steve, I just read your very emotional and moving homage to McCoy Tyner at your TRIBUTES page. At least I shared with him a connection to the great city of Philadelphia. Thank you for your beautiful words, they help during a time of deep mourning over the loss of this great pianist, who changed this music forever.

Been a big fan since I was 14. Just watched your interview on the NYU/Steinhardt Series - great stuff. I still listen to my favorites from my youth including Ralph Towner, the Brecker Bros., Steve Gadd, Dave Valentín and yourself. The soundtrack of my years in Latin America, you were one the main musicians who filled the void in a faraway land. Respect and many blessings to you. So glad you are still here! You look very healthy for 72. Legend, pure and simple! P.S. I showed a lot of Spanish folks your music. Keep yourself safe. Brock

Hi Steve! Been awhile, after I bought your 2 "KHANCEPTS" books. GREAT STUFF! I just saw that you have another book, "The WES MONTGOMERY GUITAR FOLIO." I've always loved Wes' playing, but it was his 'chord melody' solos that blew me away. It took awhile for me to learn his chord solo in "Down By The Riverside" from the "DYNAMIC DUO" album with Jimmy Smith. I also like the new twists that you use in your own chord solos. Does the Wes book offer more of this concept? Thanks again for all that you've contributed to the ART of Jazz Guitar.

You once did me a favor, and my daughter and I have loved your playing ever since "Darlin' Darlin' Baby." However, your "A Shade of Jade" is on a whole new level of fusion awesomeness. I am completely struck. All the best to you! Thanks for the CSTE tape from years ago!

I think your playing and composing is the best currently in Jazz. I have followed you since Steve Marcus, and I have about 25 of your albums. I also love Farlow, Martino, Raney and Kessel, so I include you in good company. Please live to be at least as old as your father so that I can continue to buy at least one CD a year from you. God Bless and keep you and yours...

Hi Steve, Hope all is well. I heard "C. & D." on KJAZ here in L.A. last weekend. It BLEW MY MIND!!! So cool. Loved hearing this. The band sounds so AMAZING. Hope to hear this group live some day. Lifelong fan of yours, all the best, John

Hey Steve, It's been a few years since I last communicated with you, but hearing "PATCHWORK" made me say hello. Glad to hear about Japan's "JAZZ LIFE" magazine, 22 All-Time Great Jazz Guitarists. I agree. Pushing KCSM (out here in the Bay Area) to play you a bit more! Anyway congrats, keep those fingers healthy and playing.

Steve, great post about James Taylor recording your father's song, "Teach Me Tonight" for his upcoming album, "AMERICAN STANDARD." It is a warm and wonderful interpretation by JT. He makes all songs feel as though HE wrote them.

Happy New Year 2020! Love your playing, Steve! You definitely have your own GTR voice. I was listening to a station on Pandora the other day, a song came on that I had never heard. I thought, "that guitar sounds like Steve Khan." I checked, and of course it was from "PARTING SHOT"! Admittedly, I only owned "TIGHTROPE" and "CASA LOCO," which I purchased back in the day! ANYWAY! Love your stuff and the Latin Jazz you produce! Peace!
