I've got a little bit of jet lag, so I'm up early - in my office writing emails, and I hear something familiar in the background in the living room on the radio, our WBGO. It's your record with Mark Kibble!! It sounds absolutely beautiful. Congratulations my friend on another gorgeous piece of music.

Hi Steve: Wanted to extend a big congratulations to you on "Island Letter." Fantastic arrangement and recording of a wonderful song. Always happy to hear your acoustic guitar playing too. I loved the video, and just purchased a CD through Blue Canoe Records; people need to support and show love to truly great artists, which of course you and Mark Kibble are the pinnacle. Sending this from my hotel room in Liverpool, UK. Playing a few gigs here. All Best, Max

Steve! Wow! I love the new "Island Letter" single with Mark Kibble and your band of merry men, Rob, Marc and Rubén! I am finally able to go back to Australia in a few weeks. I can't wait to see my children again. I'm looking forward to hearing more from you chaps, that's if there are any plans to record some more music??? Best wishes and thank you once again for beautiful playing and an incredible version of a wonderful tune. Phil

Steve, I just wanted to write to say, "Hello." I am a big fan of your music - I have most of your recordings, as well your Pat Martino book. I wrote you back around 1991 or so to ask about your books, and you were kind enough to write back. I saw you perform at the Jazz Estate in Milwaukee (probably around 1992), and I hope to catch you again live somewhere if things settle down enough in the world. I enjoy your website and visit it every so often to check your NEWS page, and see if there are any recent additions to STEVE'S FAVORITES! Some really interesting, fun, and funny stuff there. I hope you and your family are doing well. All the best to you, Jason Wessel

Steve, just wondering if you were open tuning your strings at the end of Billy Joel's "Big Shot"? Every time I tune my guitar, I always hear that, and I'm reminded of that. Also, I love your playing on "NOUVEAU CHAPEAU" with Free Beer, especially songs like "One Eyed Jackass" and "Goin' Away." - Dave

Hi Steve: I wanted to thank you for publishing "CHORD KHANCEPTS." I have always been curious as to the incredible vocabulary you have in this area. It's awesome! I have also found a few performances on YouTube. Cool to see you play live . I hope you are well.

Hello Steve, I came to discover your music by way of Anthony Jackson and Dave Weckl way back in the '90s. I moved to the NYC area in 2019, just as Anthony announced his retirement. I met Anthony at Sony Hall @ Hiromi's solo performance, and feel fortunate to have seen him perform live once in 2017. I frequent the 55 Bar and other NYC venues, but wish I had seen you play! I've been rediscovering your catalog. Brilliant!! Are you still touring and will you play in NYC anytime soon? Thanks for the inspiration!

Hi Steve, I have loved your music (particularly the Eyewitness records) since I started playing guitar as a young boy growing-up in Chicago. I live in Manhattan now. I hope this note finds you well, especially in such strange times. Thank you for all the beautiful music! All the best to you, Jonny

You are truly a Zen master of guitar, and easily one of the greatest jazz guitarists ever! Your music does not have all of the unnerving melodies and rhythms heard in much of recorded jazz, and your music instills a 'calmness' that allows the listener to truly enjoy your incredible skills as a guitarist. I would love to learn how to play your incredible jazz chord voicings as used in "Let's Call This," "All Or Nothing At All" and especially "Descarga Khanalonious." You are amazing my friend, and I look forward to learning more from you! Using Logic Pro X I am trying to record backing tracks using your method of voicings, and then improvise on guitar and tenor sax.

Hi Steve - I feel as though I owe you an apology of sorts. Ever since 1981, I thought the guitar solo on Donald Fagen's "True Companion" was Larry Carlton. 41 years later, I find out that it was you. So, my apologies for not doing my due diligence and mis-crediting "True Companion," even if it was just in my head. It's a beautiful part, and one you should be proud of. Soulful, with a beautiful tone, and the way you complement each chord with the perfect note(s). Thank you for such a gorgeous piece of music.

Hello Steve, I've been a big fan of your playing and music for many years. I think you represent much of what I love about what the guitar can do in jazz or pop music. I've come to a bit of a crossroads in my own playing and music as far as where to go. Though I grew up on rock, I love jazz as well. I've spent years learning quite a few jazz standards. Transcribing bits of solos, chord voicings, etc. I'm torn about how to proceed as a musician, how to blend these two musical streams together (jazz and pop/rock). I'd love to hear your take if you can find the time!

Hi Steve, been a fan since your first album. Still listen to all your recordings and can't get enough of your Anthony Jackson period. Thanks for all you do/did. Big fan, Grant

Watched your YouTube with Dr. Dave from the NYU Steinhardt Jazz Studies from 2019! You shared some deep things Steve for musicians and people just living their life! Thank you for some album titles for me to check out! Thank you for being a pretty Cool and Kind Cat! May this find you in good health! - Adam

Mr. Khan, My name is Dylan, and I was born in 2002. I am currently 19 years of age, and attending university wherein I study history. And, I am writing to you, just briefly, to say how thoroughly I enjoy your own solo records and works. In terms of my music taste, it has been transformed rather brilliantly by the likes of you and your guitars. It has been a phenomenal awakening in the last few years, and the music you compose is something to behold.
If it is of interest to you, my favourite album of yours is "EYEWITNESS," shortly followed by "THE BLUE MAN," the latter containing my all-time favourite piece, Randy Brecker's "The Little Ones." You are the creator of the music that has and will define my young-adult life, and I am proud to say so, for it has served me well. So thank you, Mr. Khan, for the music that has kept my life jovial. I hope to be an author one day, and I can only dream to put as much emotion and such atmosphere into my own works of fiction.
As a writer knows best, it is easier to convey reality in experience than through words, yet I hope I have conveyed my message well. Thank you for your work Mr. Khan; it has truly been my pleasure. With wishes of good health and best regards,
