Hi Jim,

I knew you a bit from working at Bank of California in Beverly Hills in the early to mid 1980's.
I have one of your albums and really enjoy it. A few years ago you played at Wolf Trap, in Vienna, Virginia and I wanted to come see you, but my daughter had just purchased her first house and needed my help moving her in! If you ever play in Northern Virginia again, I would enjoy seeing you play! All the Best! Cindy Doughty

Dear Jim,
Just read the article in JJG. I think many more will learn about you and your great work. Really appreciated your thoughts on marriage, career, and the joy of playing great music. Maybe someday you'll make it up here to beautiful Oregon to perform?

the best is yet to come,
Eugene, Oregon

Hi, Mr. Fox,

My father, brother and I enjoyed meeting you last night after the Frank Sinatra Jr. show. What an experience! Your playing was great, and the band sounded so tight. I hope we can see you at future concerts, or maybe you'll be visiting Berklee to give a masterclass some time. I'll be taking a new look at my Leavitt guitar books too. Thank you for the tips!

Best wishes,

Menas Woloohojian

Hi Jim!
I'm Warne Marsh's oldest son. What was the occasion for that photo of him and Jeff? Never saw my dad with a suit like that! Cool.

Hope this finds you well. I'm doing a documentary about him. Love to get a scan of this photo if you have a source for it!

Hi Jim, I have read some fantastic things about your career in the jazz guitar genre. I would like to know if you have instructional books or other materials on jazz guitar soloing or in the line of John Coltrane among other jazz great. I am looking for material that delves into jazz guitar solos in the bebop-hardbop era. Thank you.

Hi Jim,

My husband Tom has been going to Spazio's a lot and met you about a month ago. He bought your CD and we love it so much. We play it for friends and they love it too.

We actually met you previously, years ago, at Lori Barth's house.

We will try to come to the next Spazio's gig.

Best to you and your wife,

Tina & Tom McDermott

I saw the picture with you and William Leavitt. I studied with him my senior year at Berklee in 1984. I remember his office! He was such a helpful and sweet man. Thanks for posting that picture, it really made my day and brought back memories. Do you have a picture of Al Defino? (hehe)

I so enjoyed the set I was priviledged to hear last night with you and Bob Bain, as I have previously. The simpatico you two have really is a magic thing--I think Bob may be the greatest rhythm player ever, right up until I hear you accompany him as he solos. "Sunburst" is a thing of beauty and I hope you are justly proud of it. Looking forward to many more great times, both live and recorded!
Your friend,
