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

Hi Steve, I am a huge fan of your "CHORD KHANCEPTS" book. I am wondering if your choice of guide-tone fingerings with first and fourth fingers to cover two-fret distances, and first and third for one-fret differences is deliberate for some reason, or simply what comes naturally to you. I can't tell if it might be easier to add a melody note, or to flesh out chords that way. My natural tendency is to use first and third, and first and second, but there is still time to change before I become overcommitted to those fingerings! I worked a fair amount on chord voicings and movement on the top 4 strings, but now I realize that I have not spent enough time on the guide tones.

Hi Steve, Just dropping by to say that I hope all is well with you. Noticed that BGO are releasing a remastered "ALIVEMUTHERFORYA" in February, I'm looking forward to replacing my worn out vinyl. Best wishes, Ben

Greetings Steve. Are you aware that Steve Marcus' "SOMETIME OTHER THAN NOW" - featuring you, Don Grolnick, Will Lee and Steve Gadd - will be released late January, 2018 in Japan? This CD will be one of 30 titles from the Flying Dutchman catalog that will be released as part of the "Flying Dutchman Low-Priced Reissue Series." I have it pre-ordered! Looking forward. Hope all is well with you.

Steve, I love your web site, and I love your music. After 40 years of basically playing blues, in my early retirement I've gone to the proverbial woodshed to study the music I really love, jazz. Which led me to your site. Though almost all of your analyses are over my head, I have to say how much I really appreciate what you are giving back to the jazz learning community in your work. The analyses are beautifully rendered, both in the content and in your style of explaining it all. For me, it's like a glimpse into the inner workings of genius in all of its beautiful jazz manifestations. Your work is truly inspiring. And it gives me great joy even though, as I said, most of it is beyond my comprehension in this lifetime. Keep up the inspiring work. And thank you!

Steve, with the nominees announced for the 60th Grammys in the "LATIN JAZZ" category, I was again upset to see that "BACKLOG" was not included. But then, also ignored were albums by Eddie Palmieri, Oscar Hernández, Charlie Sepulveda, and Arturo O'Farrill w/ Chucho Valdes. Of the 5 nominees, only Jane Bunnett's album actually features the sounds of real Latin percussion. What were the academy voters thinking? Never going to understand this. To repeat myself, those who heard your album know that it was, without question, one of the 5 best Latin Jazz recordings of this year, or any year. ¡Pa'lante siempre!
