Hi John. I really don't believe in co-incidences, so I am soooo grateful that your Sept 2011 gig at the 55 on Christopher Street fell neatly as Angela and I were making our first visit to NY. The gig was outstanding and Chris Potter seemed to be enjoying the ride too :) You are doing a special work, keep true to your vision. Stay safe. Steve (London)

Hi John, today I've got the CD "The age we live in" from you. I love the music of David Binney, Wayne Krantz, Chris Potter, Scott Colley, Eivind Opsvik, The Claudia Quintet and JOHN ESCREET... to name a few. Thank you for sending and of course the good music and hope I see you soon in Berlin. Kind regards, Thomas Siebert.

Wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying your new cd. It's definately going to take me several listens as some songs are more complex than others.
I own several of your other cds and I saw you live with Ambrose in DC in 2010. All the best to you.

I enjoy the music. I play the piano as well. Do you have any special technique or improvisation workouts that you do regularly?
April 27th, 2007Graham South
Hi John, we've met before ages ago at a prom that Marcus Farnsworth was doing (I'm his flatmate). I was just wondering if you've produced anything for big band in the way of compositions/arrangements. I run the big band at Manchester University and we are desperate to keep our material fresh, so we're looking for young composers and arrangers who want their music played to send us some scores.
Any way you can help? Thanks,
April 20th, 2007Joel
