Steve, I enjoyed your personal FAVORITES page. I know that I once mentioned that I was 22 years old in 1982, alone in NYC to do a summer internship at "TIME" magazine. I went to see you and Eyewitness at Seventh Ave. South. Being my first real time out of Florida, I enjoyed the darkness, and smallness of the room, and sitting up front with my feet on the small riser, right in front of Anthony Jackson. I had a real good (first) time. A little club in a big city. Thanks for the memory. - Dave

Dear Steve: I just read what you wrote about Anthony Bourdain at your TRIBUTES page, and had to tell you how very moving it was. Like you, I was a dedicated fan, and never missed one of his shows on Sunday nights on CNN. He will be greatly missed by one and all.

Steve: I picked-up your CD "BACKLOG"! It still knocks me out. Your interpretation of your Dad's tune, "Our Town" is so perfect, musically and emotionally as well as the rest on the work. I'm a fan. Not sure how you stay in contact with fans, but add me to it. Your work with Joe Zawinul was great as well. Thanks, Chris

Wow Steve, the remastered Eyewitness albums are incredible! I can hear things I've never heard before. Especially Steve Jordan's brushwork! And many other things too. I will always be grateful to you for sending me copies of these three brilliant albums with your signature on the back in 2000. (Damn, time flies!) I cherish them. Still have the envelope you mailed them in. Three of the most precious albums in my vast collect! Be well my friend! - Michael

Hello Steve, my name is Mo Khan, and we live in Parker, Colorado. I am the youngest son of the greatest Squash player ever, Hashim Khan. I, along with 6 of my brothers, also played for many years all over the world. I wanted to tell you that I am a huge fan of yours, and would love to meet you if you ever make it out to Denver. You are so great at what you do, and we really enjoy your work. We would also like to invite you to the Denver Athletic Club for a game of Squash when you come. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Hey Steve, Did you see these from today's papers?
DAILY NEWS: "Right now the action in your chart is focused on your house of writing and communications. Not everyone can squeeze more than an Instagram post out of their mind, but you certainly can. This rare energy will last for another week. Do not waste a single day. And do NOT post to the internet!"
NY POST: "It's not often you get the chance to go back and put right the things you got wrong, but over the next three to four days that is exactly what you can and must do. Put your current activities on hold and revisit what happened in the recent past."
Hope to see you soon,

Steve, Just a longtime fan checking in. Saw you live at Jonathan Swift's (RIP) in Cambridge in early 1978 with Tom Scott - great show. Hope you're healthy and happy. Keep playing 'til they shovel on the dirt. Thanks! - DP

Hey Steve. I know I e-mail you every few years, but man, I love your stuff. Always check out your site when I can. Just wanted to say that I appreciate your music and collaborations. I really hope to see you in concert sometime. Peace, as always, Scott

Hi Steve, I wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying the new remaster of "PUBLIC ACCESS"/"HEADLINE"/"CROSSINGS." I pre-ordered it after reading your note about it on your website earlier this year. Well, the package arrived yesterday, and I've been listening to it a lot - the music is excellent! And what a band!! I enjoyed the terrific booklet, and as a guitar player I especially appreciate the interview where you describe how you re-invented your playing style using a combination of fingers and pick technique.
I've told you this before, but thanks again for your great website and the books you've written, they have been a great source of inspiration. Your website contains a wealth of insight and information, and I find myself returning to your Pat Martino book often, especially where you describe Pat's approach to soloing and cite examples for each one.
With this new release, I now have all your remasters released over the last 2-3 years (including "TIGHTROPE"/"THE BLUE MAN"/"ARROWS" and "EYEWITNESS"/"MODERN TIMES"/"CASA LOCO," plus the excellent live record that you did with Larry Coryell "TWO FOR THE ROAD"(Wounded Bird). These, along with your excellent "BACKLOG"; "PARTING SHOT"; "SUBTEXT"; "THE SUITCASE"; and "THE GREEN FIELD" have given me many hours of great listening! Thanks again and have a great day!

Hello Steve, I've been a fan of your playing and music for a long time. Always loved that sound you get with your Ibanez DCF-10. I bought one off of Ebay, maybe 5 years ago, but could never quite dial in your sound, despite your setting guidelines and varying the settings. On a whim I thought perhaps the components in mine were off on the specs. After all, these are analog controls.
I found a used and beat-up looking unit from Reverb.com. The seller was selling gear from his friend's studio who had died recently. My understanding is the guy was a music producer. From the looks of it, it had a lot of use. I figure if it didn't sound good, it wouldn't be used that much. Just got it today. Out of the box, the unit sounded quite different from mine. I didn't have a lot of time to play with it, but using your settings as a starting point, I got very close to your sound by just dialing the Delay time to about 10 o'clock, the speed to 10 o'clock, and width to about 1 o'clock. Needless to say I was thrilled!
BTW, your two books, "CHORD KHANCEPTS" and "PENTATONIC KHANCEPTS" are great! Best regards,

Dear Steve: Remember these words: "If it comes; let it. If it goes; let it." And if that is not enough, go back to "Patience" by Rainer Maria Rilke. I know that you know that poem very, very well. Much love,

Hola Steve, this morning, I read in the online version of "EL PAÍS" from Caracas, Venezuela, a headline in the CULTURA section that read: "Muere Steve Kahn, el americano que conquistó Morón"! I was horrified, especially when the provided link for the name Steve Kahn, took the reader directly to your homepage! Yes, the transposition of one simple letter, K-a-h-n instead of K-h-a-n put quite a scare into all of your fans. I read that you the Flamenco guitarist/photographer, Steve Kahn, often played in Greenwich Village and people would come to see/hear him expecting to find YOU there. I also read that your own fans would write to ask you if you were playing solo Flamenco guitar in the Village. Mainly, it's important to say that we are all happy that you are still with us. Un fuerte abrazo, Yrvis

I just want to say thank you for all your insight. I recently found your "CHORD" and "PENTATONIC KHANCEPTS" books, and I have found so much helpful material for my playing, and for teaching my students. Really appreciate these books, and glad I came across your name online. Just wanted to let you know that it's making an impact. Take care, Justin

I don't see anything on the site re: tours. Any possibility that you'll play up here in San Francisco? You'd sound amazing at the SF Jazz Center. I absolutely love your music.

Dear Steve: Long time! Years! Still listening to your newer CDs. Wishing you a great year ahead in 2018 and hoping that it is not as difficult as 2017. "BACKLOG" was a revelation. Great work!!! Peace out, Tony
