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.

You must have lot of fans all around the world, so I don't know if you remember me. In 1979 or the early 1980's I bought your album "ARROWS." It struck me and on the insert was your P.O. Box address. So I wrote a (actual) letter to you and posted it. To my surprise, I got a letter back from America! (I still have it here, tucked safely away in the sleeve of "ARROWS." You talked about your other albums ("TIGHTROPE"; "THE BLUE MAN"; "EVIDENCE" and others) but especially about the artwork of Jean-Michel Folon.
Anyhow, I'm a huge fan of Frank Zappa and your work seems to match that (really!). Somehow, after all these years, after listening to Frank Zappa's "Watermelon In Easter Hay," I started to think about you again. So I looked you up on Spotify, and the first (or latest!) album that I found was "PATCHWORK." And the first song ("Epistrophy") was everything I could have wanted. I haven't even heard the rest of the album or the previous albums, but that was enough! It's like you had never been away!
Anyway: thanks for all the music since 1979, and I hope you are safe in these times. A sincere greeting from me, a long time fan. - Harry

Hi Steve, I just wanted to say "Hi!" - and I'm really grateful to you for giving me such awesome lessons back in mid-'90s in Boston. I wish that you have wonderful holidays and a happy new year 2021.

Hi Steve, Loved your tribute to Charley Pride at the "TRIBUTES" page. It was very moving and touching to read what you wrote about one of our great country music legends - and you mentioned the playing of Lloyd Green too. Thank you, and have a great holiday season.
